Description/Abstract

Monarchs Maximizing Access to Research Careers (M-MARC) Undergraduate Student Training for Academic Research (U*STAR) supports eligible students' academic and research activities while they train to enter Ph.D. programs in Biomedical Sciences research. M-MARC Trainees begin the program when they are Juniors majoring in Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Computer Science, or Psychology. They receive excellent financial benefits, exceptional professional training and research experiences, and participate in outreach activities. M-MARC Trainees make exceptional candidates for doctoral program admission and are very strong candidates for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and other discipline specific fellowships.

Information will be available about M-MARC eligibility, the application process and specific benefits of the program. Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year will be available and are due on March 1, 2019.
