Founded in 1980, the Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP), originally named the Minority Science Scholars Program, offered guidance and support for minority students majoring in the Natural Sciences at Haverford College. As a result of great success, in 1988, MSP expanded to include students majoring in Humanities or Social Sciences.

MSP is co-directed by Jeff Tecosky-Feldman of the Math department, Dean Michael Martinez and Lionel Anderson from the Offiice of Academic Resources. They work with student coordinators to plan and facilitate a series of workshops geared towards academic excellence, setting career goals, and finding internships on and off campus.
