The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded initiative designed to support undergraduate students who face or have faced social, educational, and/or economic barriers to careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEMS) fields. There is a coalition of institutions within the State University of New York (SUNY) system that collaborate 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:

  • Navigate a Research 1 university.
  • Excel in math, science, or engineering majors.
  • Graduate on the "cutting-edge" of your discipline.
  • Graduate school and/or industry access.


To be eligible for Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP), you must:
