Graduating high school seniors interested in MASP should apply to our summer bridge program known as PEAC. This intensive 4-week program is designed to help acclimate students to the academic culture of the University while facilitating the development of a supportive community of peers. No matter how well prepared a student thinks they are for CU-Boulder, PEAC will challenge them and help them focus on areas where they might need additional support. Only students who have already been admitted to the University of Colorado at Boulder as incoming freshmen will be accepted to PEAC.
Current CU students can join MASP by filling out our application. Once a student is accepted into the program, the student must attend our weekend bridge program called Mini PEAC (Program for Excellence in Academics and Community). They must also meet MASP's academic and community requirements before they are considered for the scholarship. The scholarship is then maintained by continued completion of MASP requirements and involvement in the MASP community. Application for the 2020-2021 year is currently open.
"As a first year student I joined PEAC with the expectation that I would gain the knowledge I needed to survive college. What I was not expecting was to find myself surrounded by a supportive network of faculty, staff, and students that not only created an atmosphere conducive to my social and personal growth, but remained unwavering in encouraging my intellectual development as well."
“The best part about PEAC/MASP was how caring the staff and professors were. It really was a community established to help us make it through.”
“My favorite thing about PEAC is the connections I was able to make with other students before beginning the school year.”
