The ARCOS Undergraduate Research and Project Opportunity (URPO) program was created to broaden students’ knowledge in their chosen fields, enrich their undergraduate experience, and jump start their careers as researchers. This program offers MDC-Wolfson campus students the opportunity to work one-on-one with an MDC faculty on available research/projects. Students have to be available to work in research/project activities for 5-10 hours per week for both the fall and spring terms. Interested STEM students have to submit an application to the ARCOS program. Selected students who successfully complete program requirements have the opportunity to receive a $400 stipend for each term that they participate in. For additional program details, eligibility, responsibilities, and deadlines, please refer to the applications located at the top, right hand side of this page.
