The Miramontes Arts & Sciences Program (MASP) supports high-achieving traditionally underrepresented undergraduate students who want to be a part of a diverse academic community. MASP provides its students with a supportive community of students, faculty and staff; participation scholarships; academic research opportunities; and a dedicated space for community activities, study and seminars. Because of the support MASP provides, its students consistently perform better than their peers at CU and have a higher than average retention and graduation rate.
