Multiple opportunities exist across the different sciences for undergraduate students interested in research opportunities. The MBRS RISE program promotes undergraduate and graduate student involvement in research by providing salaries, tuition, and or travel funds to attend scientific meetings. The MARC U*STAR Program focuses on Junior and Senior undergraduate students involving them in original research and, depending on their level, these students are expected to present their work at professional meetings and publish in research journals. Please visit mbrs.fiu.edu for complete details.
