Michigan Research and Discovery Scholars 

Michigan Research and Discovery Scholars (MRADS) offers incoming first-year students a research partnership with a faculty member in an area of their choosing, as well as a small, diverse & supportive community to call home. MRADS is a residential affiliate of the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP). MRADS is an introductory research experience - you do not need to have prior research experience to be qualified for this program!

MRADS Mission Statement

The mission of MRADS is to recruit, support, and retain students from diverse backgrounds and academic fields; to introduce them to the interdisciplinary nature of research and the excitement of discovery; to engage students in building a community based on mutual respect and affirmation of diversity; and to enhance students' undergraduate experience by providing them with academic and professional resources as well as engaging extracurricular opportunities to support their academic and personal growth. 

Show your Support

We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, MRADS needs your support.
