Michigan Research and Discovery Scholars (MRADS)



“I chose MRADS because I wanted to gain real-life experience through research early on in college and I wanted a community that I could share those experiences with.”




“MRADS provided me with an opportunity to learn about what other people were truly passionate about; an opportunity I would not otherwise have if I retreated into my major.”



In MRADS, I was able to collaborate with students in a multitude of fields from around the world while creating some of the strongest friendships I’ve ever had. As a first generation college student, MRADS has prepared me to succeed. If it were not for this community, I would not have been able to achieve what I have so far.



“I chose MRADS because of both the community and the research aspect. Research and college always seemed like a daunting task, but I believed having a community to relate to would make my transition to college smoother.”
