The purpose of this initiative is to provide additional trainee slots 
to successful MARC U*STAR programs to enable these programs to support 
students majoring in quantitative sciences such as physics and 
mathematics for participation in their programs as MARC trainees.  The 
intent is to allow these additional trainees to participate in 
biomedical research and interact with MARC trainees from 
biological/behavioral backgrounds.  It is anticipated that the addition 
of trainees with quantitative backgrounds to MARC U*STAR programs will 
have a synergistic effect and that both the programs and the trainees 
involved in the programs will benefit from their participation.  
Therefore, active MARC U*STAR programs, with at least two years of 
support remaining, may request from two to four additional MARC trainee 
slots for this purpose.  Continuing programs with 10 or fewer student 
slots can request no more than two additional trainee slots and 
programs larger than 10 students can request up to four additional 
trainee slots, but only for the years remaining on the parent grant.
