MIT's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program
We are soliciting applications for visiting students to engage in research as part of the summer 2014 Amgen-UROP Scholars Program. While spending a summer in Boston and gaining research experience, students will be paid a stipend, room, board and transportation to and from Boston will also be covered by their appointment. All students 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, a 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 enthusiasm these young scholars will bring to our campus and appreciate this opportunity to build a relationship with your faculty and campus.
