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.
