MSRIP 2015

Mentoring Summer Research Internship Program (MSRIP)

Established in 1987, MSRIP is the umbrella program for a subset of other summer programs, such as CAMP, UCLEADS, MSP and others that participate in an eight-week undergraduate research experience.  The summer research program is designed to prepare participants for graduate and professional study by providing valuable research experiences, training, seminars and multiple workshops aimed at better preparing scientists. CAMP members wanting to participate in the CAMP summer program under MSRIP, fill out and complete the Summer CAMP Application in the link below.

1.) CAMP

CAMP was established at the University of California, Riverside in 1994 and is funded both by the National Science Foundation [NSF] and the University of California. CAMP is a statewide initiative that aims to support and retain underrepresented undergraduates to achieve their degrees in the STEM fields and works to encourage students of color to successfully complete undergraduate science and engineering degrees and further pursue their studies at the graduate and professional level. The CAMP program epitomizes the uncommon of California, integrating research and undergraduate education, CAMP creates a cohesive set of experiences that fully prepares undergraduates for graduate education and influences career choices.



The UC Leadership Excellence through Advanced Degrees (UC LEADS) Program is a two-year program designed to identify educationally and/or economically disadvantaged undergraduates pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), who will conceivably complete doctorate degrees. This program provides students with educational experiences that prepare them to assume positions of leadership in industry, government, public service and academia, following the completion of a doctoral degree, preferably at the University of California


3.) MSP

The Medical Scholars Program aims to increase the diversity of UC Riverside Students who Succeed in their BS or BA training and achieve their goal of entering medical school or post graduate programs and research. Program offers academic support such as peer mentors, study skills workshops and additional student support. They also offer research opportunities and professional career development.
