MIT has received a $1 million, four-year grant from the Amgen Foundation to provide hands-on laboratory experience to approximately 100 undergraduates through the Amgen Scholars Program.

"MIT is thrilled to continue our partnership with the Amgen Foundation in support of the Amgen Scholars Program,” said Julie Norman, senior associate dean for undergraduate education. “The students who have conducted research in our laboratories, under the guidance of our faculty mentors, have left an indelible impression not only on those they’ve met, but in some cases, on the scientific community at large.”
