  • Have status as a United States citizen or permanent resident
  • Have a good academic standing
  • Have a declared or intended major in a STEM field (NSF approved STEM disciplines displayed below)
  • Have a strong desire for research in a STEM discipline
  • Have a potential interest of a graduate degree and/or doctoral degree in a STEM field upon graduation

LSAMP is committed to the development of highly competitive STEM students from historically underrepresented minority populations - African-Americans, Hispanics, Americans Indians, Alaskan Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders

To Apply:

Prospective Scholars must review the lists of NSF approved STEM disciplines and submit a complete application for programming considerations. Any incomplete application will not be considered for consideration.
