In 1989, MURAP began as an extension of the University of North Carolina’s Summer Pre-Graduate Research Experience (SPGRE), a program that sought to increase the number of underrepresented students gaining research experience and pursuing doctoral degrees in the natural sciences. MURAP was set up to target students in the humanities, social sciences and fine arts. In its initial years, the program began humbly with three students working under three UNC faculty mentors, always with a goal of addressing diversity within higher education. By 2005, the program expanded to include up to 22 students and 10 faculty mentors per year. With the generous continued support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and additional funding from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Office of the Chancellor and of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, MURAP is now an independent program committed to the original purpose and goals.
