NFS: Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP)

The LSAMP program assists universities and colleges in diversifying the STEM workforce through their efforts at significantly increasing the numbers of students successfully completing high quality degree programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Particular emphasis is placed on transforming STEM education through innovative recruitment and retention strategies and experiences in support of groups historically under-represented in STEM discipline: African-Americans, Alaskan Natives, American Indians, Hispanic Americans, Native Hawaiian s, and Native Pacific Islanders. The knowledge generation portfolio of LSAMP supported activities contributes to the body of literature on successful practices in student recruitment, retention, persistence, and attainment of STEM undergraduate and graduate degrees, especially for the previously mentioned populations underrepresented in STEM disciplines.

The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program provides funding for: Alliances (New, Mid-Level, Senior-Level, B2B)
Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Activity Broadening Participation Research (BPR) in STEM Education
