Minority Access to Research Careers at CUNY
These programs provide stipends and specialized training for academically qualified undergraduates (and in some cases graduate students as well) committed to pursuing careers in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. Students must be fulltime, majoring in Science, Biomedical Engineering, or Psychology (though students interested in mathematics or computer science with biomedical applications such as crystallography or bioinformatics are encouraged to apply), and committed to pursuing graduate training (PhD); students intending to pursue clinical degrees in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, optometry, etc. are not eligible. Students interested in the MD/PhD degree may apply, but will be evaluated carefully.
The MARC program is for Honors students, while the RISE program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.Various CUNY colleges participate in the Minority Access to Research Careers initiative. Please view the links below for more information on each campus.
