Creating pathways to STEM
The Washington Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) program is an educational pathway program administered by the University of Washington and established by the Washington State legislature.
Washington MESA provides enrichment and access opportunities to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs for grades 6 –12 and college students across the state with the goal of increasing representation of historically underrepresented students of color and women in STEM fields.
The College Prep Program engages middle and high school students (grades 6-12) in STEM and helps them become competitive college applicants.
The Transfer Prep Program cultivates a transformative environment for college students, helping them prepare for and advance in STEM careers.
Washington MESA scholarships
We’re excited to offer two scholarship opportunities for MESA students: The Boeing Scholarship and The Weyerhaeuser Scholarship, which each provide scholarships of up to $2,500. Students only need to submit one application to be eligible for both awards. We recommended that you draft your short answers in a separate document, check spelling, then paste your responses into the online scholarship application. The application is open until June 16, 2023.
