“The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is an alliance-based program.  The program's theory is based on the Tinto model for student retention1.  The overall goal of the program is to assist universities and colleges in diversifying the nation's science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce by increasing the number of STEM baccalaureate and graduate degrees awarded to populations historically underrepresented in these disciplines: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders.”

The Missouri Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (MOLSAMP) is a community of professionals and scholars dedicated to helping you succeed in your chosen STEM field. The MOLSAMP program provides:

  • Opportunities to conduct and present undergraduate research at professional conferences and symposiums
  • Material support and stipends for students in research projects
  • A sophomore summer experience program
  • Opportunities to  meet and network with other STEM students and STEM professionals in the community
  • Preparation for post-baccalaureate education and careers in STEM
