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
  • mentorship
  • 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 tphan219@gmail.com


Good luck!
