Math Engineering & Science Achievement is an academic enrichment program    that serves educationally disadvantaged students, and, to the extent possible by law emphasizes participation by students from groups with low rates of eligibility to four year institutions. MESA offers a pipeline of curricular and extracurricular services from elementary school through university levels to increase the numbers of students who graduate with degrees in math, science and engineering. Since 1970, MESA has provided support for students who have the potential to excel and who make a commitment to work hard.
