The program is for students in their last two years before graduation at UCR (traditionally called the ‘junior’ and ‘senior’ years.)
Students in their second year or who will be enrolled at UC Riverside for at least two more full years are eligible to apply. Eligible students will have completed at least 90 units of instruction*, have a 3.3 GPA or above, be interested in research, and be willing to consider graduate school in the fields listed on this site.
All students are welcome to apply for MMUF, though applications are particularly encouraged from African-Americans, Latinos and Latinas, Native Americans, and members of other underrepresented groups. Students who have applied to transfer to UC Riverside are also welcome to apply to our program. If accepted, transfer students are conditional fellows, pending completion of their SIR (Statement of Intent to Register) at UCR. International students are not eligible for the program.
*To be eligible to apply in their second year, students must be on track to complete 90 units by the end of that year. If you have questions about your eligibility, contact us.
