As a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiative for grades 3–12,
Maryland MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement):
- Supports students statewide to prepare them to enroll in and graduate from a
two- or four-year college or university with a degree in a STEM field.
- Targets students who are traditionally underrepresented in these fields—specifically, minority and female students.
- Helps students develop leadership skills, improve their academic performance, work in a team, and compete effectively.
Administered by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL),
Maryland MESA joins 10 other MESA USA programs in serving over 49,000 students annually.
