Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement Program (MESA)

The MESA Program (Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement) serves educationally and financially disadvantaged students, and to the extent possible by law, emphasizes participation by students from groups with low eligibility rates to four-year colleges. Our goals are to help students transfer to four-year colleges by providing comprehensive academic support and enrichment, as well as to provide them with the tools and strategies to be successful once they transfer and beyond.

Paid Undergraduate Summer Research Experience:

Through the MESA program, students will be eligible to apply for full-time immersive research experiences where selected students are matched with a mentor to join their research team and work on a project for a fixed term (often 8 -10 weeks). Undergraduate research experiences help students understand a particular topic or phenomenon in a field while simultaneously strengthening their comprehension of research and research methods.

Additional Services and Activities:

MESA facilitates field trips, outreach activities, speaker presentations, leadership development activities, and state and national conferences/meetings through these affiliations.
