McNair/ROP is accepting applications from STEM Students

Insert Logo Here

The University of New Mexico’s Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program and the Research Opportunity Program (ROP) prepares undergraduates for graduate school by providing scholars with a faculty-mentored research experience and support for the graduate school application process. When scholars complete the program, many are successful in gaining admission to graduate programs nationwide and are offered financial support to help pay for their education.

Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC)

Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) is an NIH funded Undergraduate T34 training program whose mission is to help prepare undergraduates who are interested in pursuing a PhD in some aspect of Biomedical research.

MARC trains cohorts of up to ten under-represented students at a time. They provide students with resources ($988/month) in addition to laboratory supply money and support to travel to national conferences, which greatly build CV strength. This type of support allows their scholars to concentrate on academics and research, rather than jobs. In addition, they also help scholars find labs and professors that fit their future goals, with advisement and assistance for two years, including the graduate school application process.

Interested? Find out more about the program, including the requirements and application at: Best of luck!
