The Pasteur Foundation Summer Internship Program provides U.S. undergraduates with the rare opportunity to conduct summer research at the Institut Pasteur. The foundation’s goal is to encourage students in the pursuit of a scientific career and to expose them to an international laboratory experience. 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. Located in the heart of Paris, the Institut Pasteur is one of the world’s leading biomedical research organizations. With 130+ laboratories and 2,500 people on campus, it is a vibrant, international community devoted to basic scientific research primarily in the area of infectious disease.
