Calling High School Students for UC San Diego’s Mentor Assistance Program

San Diego-area high school students interested in pursuing a career in scientifically-based research are invited to apply to UC San Diego’s Mentor Assistance Program (MAP), a campus-wide initiative designed to engage students in a mentoring relationship with an expert from a vast array of disciplines. Launched almost two years ago by the university’s San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and UC San Diego School of Medicine, MAP’s mission is to provide a pathway for student researchers to gain access to UC San Diego faculty, post-doctoral fellows, Ph.D. candidates, and staff to mentor them in their own field of interest. Mentors are being recruited from across campus from fields that include athletics, biology, chemistry, aerospace engineering, network architectures, pharmaceutical sciences, physics, social studies, and more.
