Invitation for Concept Papers: NSF Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation Program
July 20, 2018
The Research and Faculty Development team invites concept papers for the National Science Foundation’s Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation Program.
The goal of the National Science Foundation’s Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is to assist universities and colleges in diversifying the nation's STEM workforce by increasing the number of STEM baccalaureate and graduate degrees awarded to populations historically underrepresented in these disciplines. These include African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders.
The LSAMP program provides funding to alliances that implement comprehensive, evidence-based, innovative and sustained strategies that ultimately result in the graduation of well-prepared, highly-qualified students from underrepresented minority groups who pursue graduate studies or careers in STEM.
