California Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CAMP) in Science, Engineering and Mathematics

CAMP letterheadThe California Louis Stokes Alliance tor Minority Participation (CAMP) in Science, Engineering and Mathematics program at UC San Diego provides support and advancement opportunities to students defined as underrepresented by the National Science Foundation (African American, Mexican American, Latino/Hispanic, American Indian, Alaskan Native, or Native Pacific Islander) who are seeking bachelor's degrees in chemistry, physics, cognitive science, biology, other sciences, mathematics, engineering and technology. Students must also be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

CAMP logoCAMP is federally funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) with the purpose of increasing the diversity of student participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors. We also encourage and prepare students to pursue advanced degrees in these fields.

The CAMP Science program offers events and services designed to meet the needs of a culturally and intellectually diverse student community, who are at different places on their educational paths. Individually and collectively, these activities help students:

  • Explore career areas
  • Meet informally with scientists and faculty
  • Join research programs or attend conferences where they can present scholarly work and network with research scientists, faculty members, and other students.

Student participation in CAMP activities and events is voluntary, but highly encouraged.

For information on the Alliance and CAMP programs at other UC campuses see the CAMP Statewide website.


CAMP serves underrepresented minorities as defined by the National Science Foundation (African Americans, Chicanos, Latinos, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, and Pacific Islanders) majoring in mathematics, engineering, chemistry, physics, biology or other sciences, who are permanent residents or U.S. citizens.

There are no GPA or class level requirements to join CAMP.


The CAMP enrollment form is available online and in Adobe Acrobat format. Make sure you meet the eligibility requirements outlined above before filling out an enrollment form.
