LSAMP Program

The LSAMP Program

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is a joint project of the National Science Foundation, and the California State University. Its objectives are:

  • to increase the number of underrepresented students graduating from college with degrees in Science, Technology, and Mathematics;

  • to increase the number of underrepresented students that enter graduate school in Science, Technology, and Mathematics.

In order to achieve these objectives the LSAMP supports:

  • The LSAMP Math Summer Program, designed to improve student problem-solving abilities in order to support  success in STEM courses. This is a three-week program that runs from Monday to Thursday from 8 am to 3 pm. Students participating in the LSAMP Math Summer Program receive a $500 stipend, and valuable support  in their major.

  • The LSAMP Academic Workshops for gateway courses in math and science. Students who attend the workshop at least 80% of the time, and earn a  B or better in the associated course, AND attend an approved conference concerning preparation for graduate school receive a $300 stipend. The courses covered by these stipends are: Math 1401/2/3 (Pre-calculus), Math 2210 and 2220 (Calculus sequence), Math 1601; Physics 2500 and 2510 (calculus-based Physics sequence); 2000 and 2010 (non-calculus physics); General Chemistry 2100 and 2200; and Computer Science 2010 and 2020.  

    One of the approved conferences is the CA Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education, happening virtually this year from Friday, October 22 - Saturday, October 23, 2021.  Please see https://www.cpp.edu/gradstudies/california-diversity-forum/index.shtml to complete your registration and notify LSAMP at lsamp@csusb.edu that you would like to participate in the Workshops portion of LSAMP.

  • Information and support to obtain internships for Juniors and Seniors, support for applying to graduate school, as well as support to attend conferences to present research or obtain information about graduate school.

The CSU-LSAMP program is funded by NSF grant #HRD- 1826490
