Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program
The NYC Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NYCLSAMP) is an alliance of 17 CUNY Colleges and the CUNY Graduate Center. The Alliance goal is to substantially increase the number of underrepresented minority students who pursue and graduate with Baccalaureate Degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
From its inception in November 1992, the Alliance has been at the forefront of a concerted effort to increase annual minority STEM enrollment and graduation in the City University of New York. The Alliance provides academic scholarship support to CUNY students majoring in the STEM disciplines, making research an integral part of STEM education in New York City.
