We would like to introduce you to UNCG’s Maximizing Access to Research Careers Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research (MARC U-STAR) Fellowship program. MARC U-STAR is supported by the National Institutes of Health and offers talented students underrepresented in the biomedical sciences an opportunity to prepare for graduate school.

The goal of the program is to help create a more diverse research work force by working to:

  • Prepare UNCG students during their junior and senior year to be the research scientists of the future
  • Support and enhance an atmosphere conducive to undergraduate research in the sciences at UNCG

Students accepted to the MARC U-STAR program will participate in activities designed to enhance their confidence, academic skills, and technical abilities.
