Undergraduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (U-RISE)

A student and professor, wearing white lab coats and blue gloves, hold up research specimens at a table with a microscope.

The Undergraduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement at Fort Lewis College (FLC U-RISE, formerly MARC) is funded by a research training grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, one of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The objective of this honors undergraduate research training program is to prepare underrepresented students majoring in scientific disciplines to pursue Ph.D.s and long term careers in biomedical or behavioral science research. Faculty mentors at FLC train a small group of highly qualified junior and senior underrepresented students in an honors program strong in research opportunities and science curriculum.
