The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) seeks to promote undergraduate student participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) related programs.
LSAMP scholars are eligible to have funded research opportunities at UMass laboratories.
Through LSAMP, students receive mentoring that will guide them towards a successful career. In addition, LSAMP scholars can become mentors for others and gain leadership experience.
Graduate School and Career Prep
LSAMP students will learn to build an effective resume and cover letters that stand out among their peers. LSAMP scholars will also learn about graduate schools and get a head-start on developing the skills that will help them gain admission.
Ocean Science & Technology Challenge
The Ocean Science and Technology Challenge is a joint program between The Center of Ocean Sciences Education Excellence - Technology and Engineering for Knowledge (COSEE-TEK) and the LSAMP Northeast Alliance that exposes undergraduate students to ocean science and technologies while simultaneously giving students an exciting, hands-on experience.
Students are encouraged to work alongside mentors to develop and build an ocean sampling device that could be used to address a real-world need.
