Stanford Summer Research Program for Minorities

Greetings from Stanford!

I'd like to encourage you to consider us for graduate school and to apply to our Stanford Summer Research Program (SSRP)/Amgen Scholars Program.

The SSRP is a fully funded, 8-week residential research program open to current undergraduate students. It is an advanced scientific research opportunity for diverse students who want to prepare for and enter PhD, MD/PhD, or MD programs. Each student is matched with a Stanford faculty member and lab mentor and works on a research project that is challenging, involves a broad range of research techniques, and is feasible within the 8-week period. More information about SSRP can be accessed at http://ssrp.stanford.edu and our application deadline is February 1. Our on-line application will be available December 21.

Stanford Biosciences is composed of thirteen close knit home programs: Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Biomedical Informatics, Biophysics, Cancer Biology, Chemical and Systems Biology, Developmental Biology, Genetics, Immunology, Microbiology and Immunology, Molecular and Cellular Physiology, Neurosciences, and Structural Biology. You can find more information on these programs at http://med.stanford.edu/phd. I'd also like to encourage you to learn about the faculty and the research being conducted in those departments by going to http://med.stanford.edu/profiles/

Students pursuing their PhD’s at Stanford are fully funded, which includes tuition, health insurance, and a $28,000 stipend. Currently, there are close to 500 students enrolled and while external fellowships are welcome and all Ph.D. students are encouraged to apply for them, they are not required.

One of my favorite things about Stanford is that it is a truly collaborative university. The Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities and Science are all located on the same campus, which facilitates the numerous interactions between students, faculty, and departments across the university. The Biosciences programs also offers students the opportunity to work in the laboratories of any of our 280 faculty members. Departments within the Biosciences can be found within both the School of Humanities and Sciences and the School of Medicine. Students and staff involved in the Biosciences can easily develop relationships and collaborations between laboratories and departments.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Tenea Nelson

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
