Summer Research Opportunities
Caltech is excited to announce two summer research opportunities available to continuing undergraduate students. Questions about these programs can be directed to Carol Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org or (626) 395-2887.
WAVE Fellows Program at Caltech
The WAVE Fellows program provides support for talented undergraduates intent on pursuing a Ph.D. to conduct a 10-week summer research project at Caltech. The WAVE Fellows program aims to foster diversity by increasing the participation of underrepresented students in science and engineering Ph.D. programs and to make Caltech’s programs more visible and accessible to students not traditionally exposed to Caltech. The program is extended, but not limited, to underrepresented minorities, women, first-generation college students, geographically underrepresented students, educationally and financially disadvantaged students, and students with disabilities.
Support: WAVE Fellows will receive a $6000 award for the ten-week program. An additional $500 housing and travel supplement will be provided.

AMGEN SCHOLARS PROGRAM at Caltech
Caltech’s Amgen Scholars Program is geared towards students in biology, chemistry, and biotechnology fields. Some of these fields include biology, biochemistry, bioengineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, and chemistry.
Support: Amgen Scholars will receive a $6000 award, round-trip air transportation, campus housing, and a food allowance.
