Gorman Scholar Program

The Gorman Scholars Program provides UCSB undergraduates across all STEM majors with an opportunity to receive invaluable mentoring from faculty, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students mentors while pursuing innovative interdisciplinary research projects.

Once selected as Gorman Scholars, the students embark upon an academic-year long program of scientific research and educational enrichment guided by individual Faculty Mentors and staff at CSEP. Scholars begin with a 10-week full-time summer research experience and continue their research into the following academic year. Scholars are provided with an invaluable opportunity to explore, early on, their discipline, experience a research environment, and improve their opportunities for future study in their chosen field. Each scholar is mentored by a member of the UCSB faculty, who assists the student in designing a plan of research and enrichment activities fitted to the individual interests and academic goals of the student.

The Gorman Scholars program is graciously funded by a gift from the Gorman family.
