Research Mentorship Program (RMP)
The Research Mentorship Program is a competitive, six-week summer program that engages qualified, high-achieving high school students from all over the world in interdisciplinary, hands-on, university-level research. Students will be paired up with a mentor (graduate student, postdoc, or faculty) and choose a research project from a large list of disciplines offered by the program each year.

In addition to gaining a deep relationship with their mentor, they will learn about research techniques, gain insight into professional research-based opportunities, and mature their academic goals. The lecture series - GRIT talks - will connect students to some of the best minds among the UCSB research community who present on their ground-breaking research and innovative technology. Along with these academic benefits, the students will be immersed in university life and networked with equally ambitious and curious peers.

Program Dates: June 24 – August 4, 2018

Pre-College Programs
UCSB Summer Sessions offers a variety of Pre-College programs that provide students with a unique opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. Simultaneously, these programs are designed to help shape students academic, professional, personal, and social development. Our programs will challenge high school students by exposing them to the academic excellence of UCSB while acclimating to the university’s social environment. We have programs designed for every type of student.

If you are a high school student looking to take summer courses, but are not participating in a special program, apply here. Please note, you must have an unweighted high school GPA of 3.0 or higher in college preparatory classes and can only enroll in courses numbered 1-99 without special prerequisites. You must provide an official transcript along with your online application.

Science & Engineering Research Academy (SERA)
The Science & Engineering Research Academy is a dynamic, 4-week residential and commuter summer program that introduces qualified high school students to the research enterprise through project-based, directed research in STEM-related fields. Students will take a 4-unit university course where they choose and develop a research topic specific to the track they select, under the direction of an instructor who is conducting active research in that field.

Students will develop academic and professional skills by presenting their research findings in a capstone seminar, networking with peers, and experiencing university life in a challenging environment. The lecture series - GRIT talks - will connect students to some of the best minds among the UCSB research community who present on their ground-breaking research and innovative technology.
