Opportunities are available to help MESA regionally as well as statewide.
The Riordan Foundation provided $10,000 in support of a high school MESA program in Los Angeles that would have closed due to lack of funding in 2012-2013. The support made it possible for students in the school to engage in high-level STEM activities and to form relationships with university-based mentors. With the help of the foundation’s funding, the program started a robotics team, students took a computer programming online summer college course and earned college credits. Eight graduating seniors who participated in the program transferred to universities, five of whom pursued STEM.
If your foundation has a strong emphasis on education, especially for educationally
disadvantaged, underserved or historically underrepresented populations, please notify us of
upcoming grant opportunities.
