Wave and Amgen Scholars program for non-Caltech students:
Caltech is excited to announce two summer research opportunities 
available to continuing undergraduate students. Questions about these 
programs can be directed to Carol Casey at or (626) 

WAVE Fellows Program at Caltech

The WAVE Fellows program provides support for talented undergraduates 
intent on pursuing a Ph.D. to conduct a 10-week summer research project 
at Caltech. Caltech is committed to promoting diversity within its 
educational programs and activities and strives to ensure that differing 
cultural, ethnic, social, geographic, and economic perspectives are 
represented. Caltech's WAVE Fellows program aims to foster diversity by 
increasing the participation of underrepresented students in science and 
engineering Ph.D. programs and to make Caltech's programs more visible 
and accessible to students not traditionally exposed to Caltech.  The 
program is extended, but not limited, to underrepresented minorities, 
women, first-generation college students, geographically 
underrepresented students, and educationally and financially 
disadvantaged students.

Eligibility: Students must be current sophomores through non-graduating 
seniors and must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. A minimum 
GPA of 3.2 is required.

Competitive applicants will have completed sophomore-level courses in 
desired research field, have demonstrated through academic and/or 
co-curricular activities a passion for research, and can articulate how 
their research interests align with Caltech's research areas. The most 
competitive applicants will have prior research experience.

Support: WAVE Fellows will receive a  award for the ten-week 
program. An additional  housing and travel supplement will be 

Application: Online applications are due January 7, 2015.

Caltech's Amgen Scholars Program is geared towards students in biology, 
chemistry, and biotechnology fields. Some of these fields include 
biology, biochemistry, bioengineering, chemical and biomolecular 
engineering, and chemistry.

Eligibility: Students must be current sophomores through non-graduating 
seniors, must be attending a four-year university in the US, and must be 
U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. A minimum GPA of 3.2 is 

Support: Amgen Scholars will receive a $6000 award, round-trip air 
transportation, campus housing, and a food allowance.

Application: Online applications are due February 15, 2015.
You may be familiar with the Amgen Scholars Program, a summer research
program in science and biotechnology.  The Massachusetts Institute of
Technology is a par ticipant in the Amgen-UROP Scholars Program for
a ninth year.  UROP is MIT's ?Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Program. The mission of the Amgen-UROP Scholar s Program is to provide
students with a strong science research experience that may be pivotal in
their undergraduate career, cultivate a passion for science, e ncourage
the pursuit of graduate studies in the sciences, and stimulate interest
in research and scientific careers.

During the summer 2014 program, MIT hosted 15 visiting scholars who
engaged in research under the supervision of MIT's foremost faculty
and leading researchers.
In addition to the visiting scholars, ten MIT undergraduates
participated in the program. Over the past eight summers, over 200
students have conducted research through this program.

We are soliciting applications for students to engage in research as part
of the summer 2015 Amgen-UROP Scholars Program. I request your assistance
in distribut ing this announcement to your colleagues and encouraging
young scholars on your campus to submit an application. While spending a
summer in Boston and gaining r esearch experience, your students will be
paid a stipend; room, board and transportation to and from Boston will
also be covered by their appointment. All stude nts will live on-campus
in one of our undergraduate residences. This community of young scholars
will share in the excitement of research by participating in a faculty-led
seminar series, workshops, poster session and a mid-summer symposium at
UCLA (travel, room and board are covered).

MIT is delighted to invite undergraduate students from other colleges
and universities to join our research enterprise. We value the knowledge,
experience and e nthusiasm these young scholars will bring to our campus
and appreciate this opportunity to build a relationship with your faculty
and campus.
