Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program

The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program of the National Science Foundation assists universities and colleges in their efforts to increase underrepresented minority student recruitment, retention, persistence, and attainment of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) degrees. It does this by the formation of alliances and carrying out specific programming to encourage student success in STEM. The Ohio LSAMP Alliance consists of 7 four-year institutions and 4 community colleges: Central State University, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati State and Technical Institute, Cleveland State University, Columbus State Community College, Cuyahoga Community College, Miami University, The Ohio State University, Sinclair Community College, Wilberforce University, and Wright State University.

In order to be eligible to participate in The Ohio LSAMP Alliance, students must:

  • Be an underrepresented minority as described by the LSAMP Program Description (African American, Hispanic, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, Native Pacific Islander)
  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. or its possessions
  • Be enrolled at a participating institution in an undergraduate major in a STEM discipline

The LSAMP program is dedicated to helping minority STEM students on their quest for an Associates’, Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctorate (Ph.D.) degree.
