Between 1948 and 1952, under the Marshall Plan, the United States transferred 130 billion dollars to Europe to help its recovery from WWII. During the 1950s and 1960s, Italy – the third largest recipient – moved from being a war-ravaged agricultural country to the seventh most industrialized economy of the world. Did the Marshall Plan determine the Italian growth after WWII? Or would have Italy recovered nevertheless?
The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program (URSP)
The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program (URSP) is for juniors and seniors who have a strong commitment to research and who will be completing a comprehensive independent research project or a departmental honors thesis during the 2017-18 academic term. This project must be completed under the mentorship of a UCLA faculty member.
Are you civically engaged? Do you want to work toward social justice? Interested in receiving a scholarship to do community-based research?
The MARC U*STAR Program is a two-year, NIH-funded, undergraduate honors program that seeks to increase the number of scientists from diverse backgrounds that significantly impact health-related research. The program specifically seeks to strengthen the skills and research training of students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. This program is appropriate for students interested in pursuing a PhD or dual PhD degree upon completion of their baccalaureate degree.
