The Provost Summer Mentorship Program (SMP) is a signature initiative of Penn's Equity and Access Programs and designed to increase college access for under-represented rising 11th grade students.

SMP was developed to inspire and encourage these students to seek enrollment in four-year baccalaureate educational institutions. Our program provides students an invaluable opportunity to gain hands-on experience through specially designed curricula in one of the five University of Pennsylvania's professional schools that participate in the program (i.e. - Dental, Medicine, Engineering, Law, and Nursing).
