The UCSB Research Mentorship Program (RMP) is seeking graduate students, postdocs, and researchers for a paid mentorship opportunity this summer. Applications are due June 1, however, space is limited. Read on for more information!

RMP is a highly selective and competitive six-week summer program that engages qualified, talented high school students from all over the world in interdisciplinary, hands-on, university-level research. We are seeking mentors who can guide students through a research project in STEM, humanities, social sciences, or education.

RMP is offered during Summer Session A (June 26 – August 4, 2023).

Mentor Stipend: $1,200 per project per student

  • Prospective Mentors may submit up to 2 projects (up to 2 students per project for a compensation of up to $4,800).
  • The proposed project must have a hands-on component (lab, field, computational, theory, archival, primary source analysis, etc.).
  • RMP students are highly qualified and expected to work independently. However, Mentors must meet mentees regularly to guide students through the project. 

Please note:

  • RMP students are highly prepared -- they have taken advanced high school and college courses, and have extensive programming, lab, and primary source analysis experience.
  • Mentors may be employed up to 100% over the summer.
  • The deadline to submit project proposals is June 1, 2023. However, space is limited! Mentor applications are accepted and approved on a rolling basis. 

Apply today! Any questions can be sent to Teresa Holden (
