Research Mentorship Program

Last summer, both Andrew Swafford and Emily Ellis mentored high school students in the Research Mentorship Program.

Almost 100 high school students from throughout the country travel to UCSB each summer to learn how to conduct graduate-level research in the Research Mentorship Program sponsored by the Office of Summer Sessions. For six weeks, the high schoolers participate in active research under the direction of UCSB faculty members, postdoctoral students and advanced graduate students. The projects cover a broad range of disciplines — everything from Chicano studies and chemical engineering to philosophy and physics. “I came here expecting to just learn how to do research, but it’s been so much more than that,” said Sarah Kang, a junior at San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara, who studied variances in algae growth response.
