MESA enables Underrepresented students to prepare for and graduate from a four-year college or university with a calculus-based degree in areas such as engineering, the sciences, computer science, and mathematics.
Through MESA, students develop academic and leadership skills, increase educational performance, and gain confidence in their ability to compete professionally. MESA has particular interest in and focus on students from those groups who historically have had the lowest levels of attainment to four-year and graduate level programs.
By closing this achievement gap, MESA students and graduates will be better able to make significant contributions to the socioeconomic well-being of their families and their communities.
