Post-Baccalaureate Scholarships and Fellowships Home
One of the best ways to prepare for Post-Baccalaureate Scholarships is to engage in undergraduate research:
This past summer, Nickolas Steinauer, a Junior Biochemistry major, participated in the Amgen Scholars Program at Washington University in St. Louis. The program, which provides fully-funded hands-on scientific research experiences to undergraduate students across ten universities in the US and three in Europe, ran for its seventh summer in 2013. Nickolas was one of 255 U.S. students to be selected as Amgen Scholars from a national pool of 3,640 applicants. Representing 173 undergraduate institutions, the 2013 cohort came from 42 states, DC and Puerto Rico.
Complementing his science education and experience at Saint Louis University, Nickolas completed a summer research project on Expression of Latent TGF-b Binding Proteins in Murine Eye Development under the mentorship of Steve Bassnett, Professor in the Molecular Cell Biology Program at Washington University in St. Louis. Outside of the lab, Nickolas joined other Scholars in a range of programming designed to enhance professional skills and better prepare students for graduate school.
From July 20-22, Nickolas attended the annual Amgen Scholars U.S. Symposium held both at UCLA and Amgen, where students had the opportunity to learn more about biotechnology and drug discovery and development, to meet and network with other Scholars from across the nation, and to hear firsthand from leading scientists in industry and academia.
