UCSD Mentor Assistance Program (MAPS) 2018 for High School Students


MAP Application Process for 2018-2019 Opens March 19, 2018!


Now in its third year, UC San Diego’s Mentor Assistance Program (MAP) is a campus-wide program, which will 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 Computer Science. MAP’s mission is to provide a pathway for student researchers to gain access to UCSD faculty, post doctoral fellows and staff to mentor students in their own field of interest (i.e. independent study, class projects or possible career path). 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, while simultaneously building an early foundation for success in their academic career.

The MAP Mentoring Program is administered by UCSD School of Medicine and the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
