The Moore Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (MURAP) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a graduate-level research experience for highly talented undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds who are interested in pursuing doctorates in the humanities, social sciences or fine arts. MURAP aims to foster the entrance of students from underrepresented minority groups, as well as others with a proven commitment to diversity, into graduate school and faculty positions in academia. Each summer, the program brings a cohort of 20 rising juniors and seniors in college to our campus for an intensive, ten-week research experience.
