Minority Opportunities in Research and Education (MORE)

The Minority Opportunities in Research and Education Program is design to ease the transition from undergraduate to graduate studies through academic and financial support. The MORE Program is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). MORE Scholars receive full tuition and fees and a graduate assistantship. MORE Scholars participate in programs that offer academic assistance with study skills, exam taking skills, and introduction to laboratory research. Each MORE Scholar is paired with a senior student and a faculty advisor who serve as resources as the scholars adjust to graduate school.

MORE Scholars are selected each year from under-represented minority applicants accepted to the doctoral program in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
