Mentor Assistance Program (MAP) for High School Students 

November 2016 - May 2017

Student Application Period: September 1- 30, 2016

Program Overview

UC San Diego’s Mentor Assistance Program (MAP) is a campus-wide program that engage high school students in a mentoring relationship with an expert from a vast array of disciplines, from History, Marine Physical Sciences and Nanoengineering to Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Athletics and Chemistry. MAP’s mission is to provide a pathway for student researchers to gain access to UCSD faculty, postdoctoral fellow and staff mentors in their own area of interest to complete a research project (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 lab or work environment. MAP is an opportunity for students to take the first step into a potential career path, allowing them to build an early foundation for success in their academic and research career.

UCSD’s MAP has received astounding support from the UCSD campus and community and we welcome all students with open arms, including underserved populations, women and those with disabilities. As such, UCSD will provide a San Diego Metropolitan Transit System Compass Card to all accepted students who have transportation concerns.

Further Program and Application Information
