MILES Undergraduate Research and Internships (MURI)



The MILES Undergraduate Research and Internships (MURI) Program has now concluded; therefore, we are no longer accepting applications. During the five-year MURI program we were able to reach many milestones. Did you know:

  • Over 300 MURI undergraduate students received funding during EPSCoR MILES totaling over 1 million dollars
  • Approximately 38% of MURI participants were from underrepresented populations
  • Approximately 56% of MURI participants were female
  • Approximately 18% of MURI participants were from 2 and 4 year colleges

Of those who started in Year 1 of the MURI Program...

  • 91% graduated with a B.S. or B.A. degree
  • 28% either enrolled/applied for graduate school or have been awarded a graduate degree

Although the MURI Program has concluded, we encourage you to continue pursuing your STEM goals by seeking other STEM opportunities that may be available. Please visit your institution’s STEM departmental websites or other STEM-related web resources to view potential opportunities. Some of these resources include:
