Students in the program will participate for three years, beginning their sophmore year. The program includes:

  • Financial support, including tuition, fees, and a stipend
  • Laboratory research with an investigator in the biomedical field
  • Training in research best practices and scientific communication
  • Opportunities to attend scientific conference, learn about graduate school, and build a professional network
  • Education in financial literacy
  • Mentoring and community building

The application for the MARC program is now available! Visit See also the brief video and flyer for an overview of the program.

The submission deadline is June 30, 2024. It is anticipated that decisions will be made on acceptance by late July.
