Education Opportunity Program (EOP)

EOP represents the University of California's effort to identify, retain, and graduate a diverse student body. With that in mind, the mission of the Education Opportunity Program is to promote the retention, academic success, and graduation rates of first-generation college, low-income, and educationally disadvantaged student populations, and to assist these students with preparation for admission to graduate and professional schools.   

EOP Pre-Graduate Programs

EOP encourages students to not only succeed as an undergraduate but also support and advice on how to pursue research opportunities (Pathway 2 Research program - P2R) and admission to graduate school after your undergraduate journey has ended (Graduate Information Program - GIP).  

Minority Access to Research Careers/Minority Biomedical Research Support (MARC/MBRS)

MBRS is an eight-week summer training for students interested in the field of biology and chemistry. Once successfully completed, students move into research working with faculty members in MARC.

STEM Diversity Programs

The University of California Washington Center (UCDC)

The UCDC (quarter in Washington, D.C.) Program supervises and supports students who pursue internships and academic study in the nation’s capital. The program is open through a competitive application process to juniors and seniors (occasionally sophomores) in all majors. Students enroll for fall, winter, or spring quarter, earn 12-17 course credits, and continue to be registered as full-time students. Applicant selection is based on academic record, a written statement, letters of recommendation, and possibly a personal interview.
