U-RISE at Marquette is an NIH-funded undergraduate research training scholarship program that aims to increase participation from students traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research and encourage them to pursue Ph.D. or M.D. degrees and biomedical research careers.

The two-year program includes mentored research experience, coursework, travel to scientific conferences and professional development within an inclusive community to prepare U-RISE scholars to succeed in a biomedical research-focused Ph.D. program after graduating from Marquette. U-RISE scholars also receive an approximately $12,000 stipend and scholarship support up to $16,000 in addition to travel support for conferences and summer research training.
