Undergraduate MARC U-STAR Fellows for Kinesiology!

Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors:

Are you interested in completing research in one of our on campus laboratories? Want to connect with the community while making a difference? Would you like to receive funding for your research to help you with traveling, presentations, and tuition? If so, this is the perfect opportunity for you!

UNCG was awarded an NIH Maximizing Access to Research Careers Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research (MARC U-STAR) Fellowship program. This program aims to increase the number and diversity of students entering graduate school for biomedical and behavioral sciences research. Our program at UNCG will select MARC U-STAR Fellows that work in research labs for their JR and SR years. A MARC U-STAR Fellow will receive the benefits of specialized courses and workshops; funding for their research projects; a two -year stipend with in-state tuition paid; paid summer research experiences; and funds for travel to meetings to present their work. If selected, we will work with the student and the Department to find a suitable mentor if the students does not already have one identified.

If you’re interested, and think you may qualify, please apply! More information on our labs can be found here:, and the application & program information can be found here: For questions, please click on the application and program link to see the Program Directors.
