Marshall Mentor Program Application Now Open!


Unique to Thurgood Marshall College, the Marshall Mentor Program is a year-long program providing transfer students the opportunity to work closely with faculty who will share their knowledge and experience in order to better equip students for study at UC San Diego. Faculty mentors are carefully matched with Marshall transfer students based on their interests, field of study and educational goals. 

Applications for the 2019-20 program are now open. Apply now!*

*Open to all UC San Diego transfer students enrolled in Thurgood Marshall College who started in Fall 2018.


TRELS Spring Quarter Application


The Triton Research and Experiential Learning Scholarships program seeks to provide opportunities to work directly with a faculty member on research and other kinds of experiential learning. Students awarded TRELS Scholarships will receive $1000 per quarter, which is renewable, provided there is a satisfactory progress report after the first quarter. This program is open to all students, but seeks especially to help students who may have faced obstacles to getting involved in experiential learning opportunities.

The deadline to apply for Spring Quarter awards has been extended to FEBRUARY 20th 2019. Apply now!

The application includes a series of questions, and essays on your proposed topic and obstacles you face toward experiential learning. The Academic Enrichments Program Office, where TRELS is housed, may also be able to help you connect with a faculty mentor if you do not already have one.
