Cal-Bridge Summer (CAMPARE)

If you're interested in the space sciences (astrobiology, astronomy, astrophysics, computer science, engineering, physics, etc.), check out CAMPARE and expect a deadline around 1/31 or 2/1. It is a summer research program that pays about $5000 for 8 weeks of research. They do this with a cohort model, so there are workshops and activities during the year to help students get to know each other, but students go to lots of different research sites, with travel and housing paid for. CAMPARE can be done before or after you leave community college and is for those planning to transfer to any CSU campus (Cal Poly Pomona, CSU San Bernardino, etc.).

 

Cal-Bridge for CSU Transfers

Cal-Bridge is for those who transfer to a CSU and hope to go to a UC for their masters in engineering, astrophysics, physics, computer science, etc. It pays for two years of undergrad tuition and first year of masters tuition. Cal-Bridge participants are paired with two mentors - a CSU faculty member and a UC faculty member who support students through their educational journey.
