At what stage in my research should I contact MICHR about this service?

This program is designed for students in professional degree programs. Talk to your advisor to determine the best time to take a "year out" to complete this degree. 

How much does this service cost?

The MSCR has nine positions that are fully funded by an NIH grant awarded to the University of Michigan. Those who do not qualify to receive the NIH award are responsible for cost of attendance. The cost pricing/recharge rates for this and other MICHR services are available here.
