UTokyo Amgen Scholars Program

The Amgen Scholars Program provides hundreds of undergraduates each year with the opportunity to undertake scientific research projects at many of the world's leading institutions.

Launched in 2006 in the United States, 2008 in Europe, and 2015 in Japan at the University of Tokyo and Kyoto University, Amgen Scholars has expanded to additional world-class institutions in the U.S., Europe and Asia!

UTokyo would like to express its appreciation to the Amgen Foundation for the generous support provided for this program.

Due to continuing uncertainties about travel to Japan and the operations of the UTokyo Amgen Scholars Program as well as the whole of the Amgen Scholars Program among all the 24 host institutions, information about the Amgen Scholars Program application cycle for summer 2021 is delayed.
An updated announcement will be made here in mid-November. In the meantime, please send any questions to:
