LSAMP Tutoring

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 the student’s problem solving

    abilities, in order to better his/her chances of success in the Math and Science courses. This is a four week program that runs from Monday to Thursday from 8 am to 3 pm. Students participating in the LSAMP Math Summer Program receive a $450 stipend, and an excellent beginning in their major.

  • The LSAMP Academic Workshops for the gateway courses in the science majors. Students attending the workshop 80% of the time, and obtaining B or better in the associated course, receive a $200 stipend. The courses covered by these stipends are: Math 120 (Pre-calculus), Math 211, 212 and 213 (Calculus sequence), Math 192; Physics 221, 222 and 223 (calculus based Physics sequence); 121, 122, 123 (non calculus physics); General Chemistry 215, 216; and Computer Science 201 and 202.

  • 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.
