The MARC program is selective and is only available to students who have been selected as MARC GatorSTAR Trainees. MARC Trainees will typically begin their research and program coursework in the summer prior to their junior year, during which the Trainees complete a summer research skills and ethics course and begin mentored research with a UF (“intramural”) program faculty mentor. The mentored research experience continues during the Trainee’s junior year under the supervision of the UF program faculty mentor. In the summer prior to the Trainee’s senior year, the Trainee will participate in full-time, off-campus research with an external faculty research mentor at an affiliated southeast institution. The Trainee will then continue participation in mentored research with their UF program faculty mentor during the Trainee’s senior year, and culminate with the submission of an Honors Thesis.
