 The National Cancer Institute is accepting applications for its 2014 ICRC Program.


Introduction to Cancer Research Careers (ICRC)



Applications are due by November 21st.

Apply online!  See website for further details.


 The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is pleased to announce the 2014 Introduction to Cancer Research Careers (ICRC) Program.  The ICRC is designed to encourage individuals from populations underrepresented in science and/or financially disadvantaged backgrounds to seek internship opportunities at the NCI.  Successful ICRC applicants will take part in a 2-day campus visit to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, where they will have the opportunity to learn about the various scientist-in-training programs, participate in laboratory tours, interview for either a summer or post-baccalaureate (1-year) internship.  Participants selected for internships receive a monthly stipend, round-trip travel, and summer housing subsidy.


Our goal is to encourage a diverse group of talented students to explore careers in biomedical research.  You can help us meet this goal by sharing this information with students and faculty contacts you feel would benefit from this opportunity.  Please refer to the attached brochure and the ICRC website for additional information,


Applications are due Thursday, November 21st.  Supporting materials are due Monday, November 25th.  If you have additional questions please reply to this e-mail or call us at the number below.
