LSAMP has been supported since 1996 by the State University of New York Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (SUNY LSAMP), a National Science Foundation grant program.

The SUNY LSAMP is a coalition of 16 institutions within the State University of New York system. The coalition works in collaboration with federal, state and local government agencies; major national laboratories; private industry and foundations; and professional and community organizations.

What We Do?

LSAMP helps students:

  • Successfully make the transition to a Research 1 university
  • Excel in math, science or engineering majors
  • Graduate on the "cutting - edge" of their discipline
  • Continue studies in a graduate program
