The Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) program, which provides undergraduate students interested in pursuing a PhD in the Biosciences, invites interested students to meet-and-greet events with current MARC students, Tuesday February 5 and Wednesday February 6, from 11:00am to 1pm in Eucalyptus Hall Room 2128.
MARC offers support for undergraduate research experiences with CSUN faculty, tuition and stipend support, an off-campus summer research experience, and tutoring and preparation classes for taking the GRE. The program has a strong record of preparing students for doctoral research in universities across the country; at the meet-and-greets next week, current MARC students will be available to talk about their experiences and answer questions.
Applicants must be US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents planning to graduate no earlier than Spring 2020, enrolled full time (12 units) with a GPA of 3.0 or better, and must be planning to attend graduate school (not medical or other professional education) after graduation. Interested students should pick up an application at the MARC office in Eucalyptus Hall 2128, or email firstname.lastname@example.org — applications will be due February 25.
