UCSD’s Mentor Assistance Program

This September, UC San Diego will launch a new program, which will engage high school students in a mentoring relationship with an expert from a vast array of disciplines spanning the entire campus, from History, Marine Physical Sciences and Nanoengineering to Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Athletics and Computer Science. 

The mission for UCSD’s Mentor Assistance Program (MAP) is to provide a pathway for student researchers to gain access to UCSD scholars to mentor students in their own field of interest (i.e. independent study, class projects or Science Fair projects). 

Students may choose to communicate with a mentor over email or may indicate their interest to visit the mentor’s work environment. MAP is an opportunity for students to take the first step into a potential career path. MAP students will build an early foundation for success in their academic career.
