Every summer, 40 high school students from Croatia and other areas of Europe gather for 10 days to conduct hands-on research projects with mentors who are only a few years their senior. In the small town of Požega nestled in the mountains of eastern Croatia, these students learn about opportunities in science that lie ahead of them.
A decade ago, the Amgen Foundation announced its commitment to educating the next generation of scientists through the new Amgen Scholars Program. Since then, the program has grown in numerous ways, expanding to 17 host institutions in the U.S., Europe and Japan and opening doors for more undergraduates across the globe.
According to new applicant and participant data on the 2016 program, of the 5,123 students who applied in 2016, only about 7% or 359 students were accepted.
