MURAP 2015

We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with the 2015 Moore Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (MURAP) scholars beginning May 26, until they depart on July 30.

Now in its 21st year at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, MURAP “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.”

This year, the Stone Center Library is thrilled to support this mission by offering a series of lunchtime, drop-in Research Skills Labs that will allow MURAP scholars to deepen their knowledge of research skills and tools that can be of help to them while conducting their research at UNC and once they return to their home institutions.
