The Pasteur Foundation Summer Internship Program provides U.S. undergraduates with the opportunity to conduct summer research in a participating laboratory at the Institut Pasteur in Paris.  During their internships, participants carry our research supervised by a mentor in their host lab.

Interns receive a living allowance of $400 per week, for a maximum of $4,000.  The program does not provide for housing or travel, but does provide a subsidy to help defray these costs.  Depending on availability, affordable housing may be possible on the institute’s campus. 

Applicants must be U.S. citizens and have completed three full years of college coursework, but not have graduated, by the program’s start date.  Applicants should have excellent academic records and a strong interest in the biological sciences and biomedical research—previous lab experience is recommended.  Knowledge of French or a desire to learn it is also advisable.
