Journey to Science

How did you become interested in science?

My mom is a scientist. She carried out microbiology research as a graduate student, and later as a postdoc, for most of my upbringing. I would go to the lab with her, and I also remember working intensely on school science projects. I liked microbiology, but I ultimately became interested in neuroscience because some of my relatives had conditions that affected the brain.

2016 Amgen Scholars by the Numbers

Blog

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.
