RAMP is designed to provide undergraduate students, who may be interested in pursuing graduate education, with research experience while working closely with a faculty mentor. In addition, the students participate in a variety of workshops designed to increase their awareness and knowledge of graduate school education. The aim of this program is to encourage more students from those populations who are traditionally underrepresented in graduate education to attend graduate school. Undergraduate students participating in this program can receive up to $2,800 each year.

The UCF Research and Mentoring Program provides an enriching educational experience for students from underrepresented groups and first generation/low income students, to excel as undergraduates, succeed in graduate school and ultimately enter faculty positions in our nation's colleges and universities.
