The UNCG U-RISE program (previously known as the MARC program) is designed to prepare underrepresented students to pursue a PhD in the biomedical field. Faculty in relevant disciplines are asked to encourage promising students to apply. This program is supported by the NIH.

The U-RISE program accepts applications from sophomores who have at least 2 full academic years remaining at the university.  The application deadline has been extended to February 17.

Faculty mentors of U-RISE Fellows receive supply funds ($2000) to support the fellow’s research in the mentor’s lab.

U-RISE fellows have many benefits, but to name just a few:

  • Tuition paid at the in-state level
  • Yearly stipend (~ $13,600)
  • Travel funds to attend approved national scientific conferences
  • Undergraduate research in a faculty mentor’s lab
  • Guidance in applying to grad school
