CAMP Summer Scholars

Breadcrumb

Program Overview

The California Alliance for Minority Participation is designed for students in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics [STEM] fields pursuing graduate (Master/Doctoral) degrees.

CAMP-UCR was established at the University of California, Riverside in 1994 and is funded by the National Science Foundation [NSF] and the University of California Office of the President [UCOP].

CAMP-UCR is a program that works to encourage NSF-declared underrepresented students in the STEM fields to successfully complete undergraduate science degrees and further pursue their studies at the graduate and professional level. The National Science Foundation considers an underrepresented minority in STEM as students with Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, and Non-Filipino-Pacific Islander ethnic backgrounds reported at UCR at the time of admission.

CAMP exists at nine of the UC campuses and at various California State Universities, California Community Colleges, independent colleges and universities, and national laboratories that together work to achieve a goal of doubling the numbers of minority students receiving a B.S. or a B.A. degree in the many science disciplines.
