MARC (Maximizing Access to Research Careers) is a federal program funded by the National Institutes of Health, which provides support for undergraduate students who are underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, to improve their preparation for high-caliber graduate training at the Ph.D. level. This program provides research opportunities with a faculty mentor, offers financial support in the form of a stipend and tuition assistance, travel to scientific meetings, as well as a range of other activities and support to enhance students' academic success, and preparedness & competitiveness for graduate study.

The MARC program is open only to undergraduates who have completed their first 2 years of study; trainees are limited to a 24-month period of support. MARC is an Honors program; thus MARC trainees are expected to maintain a solid overall GPA, and to enroll in Honors Research.
