What is MESA?

(Espanol)

One of the country's most dynamic and successful academic enrichment programs, MESA works with thousands of educationally disadvantaged students so they excel in math and science and graduate with math-based degrees. MESA works closely with industry partners and the University of California, the California State University, the California Community Colleges, the State Department of Education, American Indian education centers, school districts and individual schools.

MESA is the recipient of the White House "Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring," 2000, and Winner of the "Innovations in American Government" AWARD by the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, 2001.
