"California's Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) is one
of the country's oldest and best-known programs that assists students to
become highly trained technological professionals.
MESA, founded in 1970, serves educationally disadvantaged students
and, to the extent possible by law, emphasizes participation by
students from groups with low eligibility rates for four-year
colleges. MESA works with over 21,000 students throughout California
from elementary through university levels. MESA is funded through the
state legislature, corporate contributions, and grants. MESA is a
program that is managed by the University of California.
MESA stands for Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement. It targets
ethnic groups, those who are first in their families to go to college, 7th
to 12th graders, and primarily those students interested in math and
science-based degrees. The program is undergoing funding problems, but
will have a Summer Academy this year from the end of June to beginning of
August. The phone number to call for information is 642-2041.
