Access Grads Overview
Access Grads connects undergraduates with graduate students, research opportunities, and the scientific community at the University of California, Santa Barbara. We assist motivated psychology students who are interested in graduate school by pairing them with a graduate student mentor in the Psychological & Brain Sciences Department or the Clinical, Counseling and School Psychology Department. Graduate student mentors give undergraduate mentees insights into what it is like to do science day to day, how to navigate the graduate school application process, and the kinds of careers they can have in psychology. Access Grads aims to increase access to research careers for students underrepresented in science.
