Since 2007, Amgen Scholars have come from 52 U.S. states and territories, 73 countries and represented over 750 colleges and universities.

AI and intelligent automation could lead to 120 million workers in need of new skills over the next few years, according to recent IBM research. At the same time, new collar opportunities are growing and many IT skills are in high demand — cybersecurity could have 3.5 million unfilled jobs by 2021, for example. Our initiatives are intended to help address these challenges by promoting STEM skills to kids, supporting new collar skills education, and collaborating to create new paths into the tech workforce.
