The International Summer Research Program at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

One of two Swiss federal institutes of technology, EPFL is a highly-ranked public research institute and university specializing in natural sciences and engineering. Each summer, EPFL chooses 25 students from around the world and provides them with a funded two-month intensive research program. The Foundation supports this program, which includes lab work, weekly seminars and a final symposium for the students to present their research. The students are supervised by EPFL faculty members and conduct research at one of four major scientific institutions in Switzerland, spanning several disciplines including those related to global health, biotechnology, cancer and neuroscience.
