Stanford Summer Research Program/Amgen Scholars Program

The Stanford Summer Research Program/Amgen Scholars Program is a fully funded, nine week, residential research program. It offers undergraduates who want to prepare for and enter Ph.D. programs in the sciences a unique opportunity for advanced research experience within a world class university.

Each participant is matched with a member of Stanford’s distinguished faculty and will work in one of Stanford’s state-of-the-art research facilities. Participants will work with both a faculty member and a lab mentor to craft a research project. The lab environment provides challenging projects and involves a broad range of research techniques that are feasible within the eight week period. The program then culminates with a research symposium, where students present individual talks and posters on their summer projects in front of the faculty, lab mentors, and University administrators.

Students participating in the Stanford Summer Research Program are fully funded during their stay. Stanford will provide students with summer housing, meals, and travel to and from the summer research program. Additionally, all SSRP participants will receive a $3,600 stipend.
