Program Description

The Stanford Summer Research Program/Amgen Scholars Program (SSRP) in Biomedical Sciences is a fully funded, eight week, residential internship 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. The residential program runs for 8 weeks from mid June-mid August.

Eligibility

Eligible candidates are American citizens/permanent residents enrolled at undergraduate institutions who, by reason of their culture, class, race, ethnicity, background, work and life experiences, and/or skills and interests would bring diversity to graduate study in the biomedical and biological sciences. The program especially encourages applications from African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, and others whose backgrounds and experiences would bring diversity to the field. International students who do not attend colleges and universities within the United States and students who have already completed their undergraduate work are ineligible for the SSRP.

Stipend and Housing

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 $3,500 stipend.

Research Opportunities

Genomics laboratories participating in SSRP varies each year. Possible labs include those from the Stanford Genetics Department [genetics.stanford.edu].
