The MARC program application is now open until April 5th. http://www.ugresearchsci.ucla.edu/marc.htm
The program provides specialized training and professional development for minority undergraduates who want to pursue a PhD or MD/PhD in biomedical or behavioral science fields.
Perks of the program include:
- having a portion of your tuition paid for
- receiving ~$1000/month stipend for doing research
- being paid to do research at another institution during the summer
- being paid to travel to research conferences.
Up to 10 students will be selected to become a MARC Scholar during this application cycle (last year, there were only 5 spots available).
Note that you're required to participate in the program for 2 years.
I myself have been a MARC Scholar for almost 2 years. If you have any questions regarding the program or the application, feel free to me email at firstname.lastname@example.org
