MEP Success Through Advising & Relationships (STAR) Program


About the MEP STAR Program

The MEP STAR Program is a year-long academic and scholarship program that seeks to support second-year MEP students who may be at risk of not completing their degree. The program's goals are to:

  1. Provide guidance on cultivating a supportive community at Cal Poly
  2. Collaborate to create a specific academic plan to address specific risk factors
  3. Offer opportunities to connect academic with industry/career pathways

The Student Experience


Students receive a $1,500 scholarship: $750 in fall quarter, $375 in winter quarter, and $375 in spring quarter.

Meetings with a MEP Advisor

Students are required to meet with an assigned MEP advisor in fall, winter, and spring quarters.

Group Events

At least one group event per quarter is offered to the MEP STAR cohort. The group events provide opportunities for students to build community within the program, as well as make connections with the greater CENG community. Winter and spring events will have an industry/career focus.

Fall 2021 - Pilot Year

We have 15 students participating in our first, pilot year of the program.
