AvenueB is designed to help community college transfer students smoothly transition to UC Davis, and ultimately, a career in life sciences. The program was developed by UC Davis and supported by founding partner, Genentech Foundation, in collaboration with regional community college districts.
AvenueB starts during community college and provides academic and career support and enrichment opportunities before transferring to UC Davis. Once admitted to UC Davis and selected to participate in AvenueB, this support will follow the student in one of the nine majors in the College of Biological Sciences.
This program is designed for transfer students who possess a demonstrated commitment or potential for leadership to positively impact the elimination of barriers facing underrepresented populations in science and/or be from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree.
