The Pasteur Foundation Summer Internship Program 2010-American Undergraduate Students-Pasteur Institut-Paris

The Pasteur Foundation offers The American Undergraduate Summer Internships Program for the year 2010 to Undergraduate Students in Paris

As a result of the fame that accompanied Louis Pasteur’s discovery of a treatment for rabies in 1886, scientists sought Pasteur for training. Soon thereafter, in June 1887, the Institut Pasteur was established. Following in this tradition, the Pasteur Foundation created a summer internship program for American undergraduates who wish to pursue a scientific career.


Applicants must 1) be undergraduates with an excellent academic record and a strong interest in biosciences and biomedical research (prior lab experience is highly recommended); 2) have completed three full years (six semesters) of college course work by the time the internship commences; and 3) not have received an undergraduate degree at the time of application. Knowledge of French or desire to learn it is advisable. This program is open to U.S. citizens only.

Internship Details:
During the internships, interns will carry out research supervised by a lab mentor. Applicants should be eager to engage with a different culture, and self-sufficient enough to arrange travel and secure housing in Paris. Depending on availability, affordable housing in a residence on campus may be possible. Interns will receive a living allowance of $400 per week for a maximum of $4,000. Travel/housing are not paid by this program, but a $300 subsidy is provided and intended to defray costs of travel and requisite insurance.
