The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) is a program to improve the graduation rates of students in science, technology, engineering, and math fields and particularly to improve the number of degrees awarded to ethnic minority students.

LSAMP provides you with research and enrichment experiences in your field. If you are accepted as a Louis Stokes Scholar, you will be paired with a faculty mentor who will help you learn about the real-life research going on in his or her area. Plus, you may earn a stipend of $1,500 to $2,000 for your summer research experience.
