The EXPRESS Program (Exposure to Research for Science Students) is a specially designed program for freshmen and sophomores at MU who are from ethnic groups that are “underrepresented” in the sciences. This includes students who identify themselves as African American, Hispanic, Native American/Alaskan Native or Pacific Islander. This program has recieved prior funding from a grant from the National Institutes of Health to encourage underrepresented minority students to pursue a career in biomedical research.

This includes students who identify themselves as African American, Hispanic, Native American/Alaskan Native, or Pacific Islander (Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Marianas, Palau, Micronesia, Melanesia, or the Philippines). Students must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents of the US.
To apply, fill out the application and follow the submission directions on the form.
- EXPRESS students typically work 8-12 hours/week during the semester at $7.25–$7.40/hour.
