in science, engineering, and mathematics enrichment activities throughout their entire undergraduate careers. While programs vary from campus to campus, students often receive two summers of intensive work in mathematics, academic-year workshops that support their mathematics and science courses, and research internships. This program is sponsored by the NSF.

California Alliance for Minority Participation

Many University of California campuses have California Alliance for Minority Participation (CAMP) programs that offer support and advancement opportunities to underrepresented students seeking bachelor’s degrees in chemistry, engineering, mathematics, physics, or other sciences. CAMP participants can take advantage of events and services designed to meet the needs of a culturally and intellectually diverse group of students. Some CAMP activities include workshops, research projects, meetings with faculty, and scholarships. Participants must be a member of an underserved minority (African-American, Chicano, Latino, Native American, or Pacific Islander) and majoring in chemistry, engineering, mathematics, physics, or other sciences.
