Mentored Advanced Projects (MAP)

In a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP), you’ll work closely with a faculty member on a research or creative project that integrates the knowledge and skills you’ve gained at Grinnell. Many MAPs result in papers, presentations, performances, and exhibits that share the results of the project regionally, nationally — even internationally. Nearly 40 percent of Grinnell students complete a MAP.
