Welcome to LSAMP
Welcome to the University of Washington Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program homepage. In the fall of 2009, the National Science Foundation awarded the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) grant to five institutions in the Pacific Northwest region, with the University of Washington (UW) as the lead institution. The purpose of LSAMP is to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation rate of underrepresented students in the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

The three main goals for the program are:
- To increase pathways to college for underrepresented minority students while strengthening their interest in pursuing STEM careers;
- Create a culture and community of success for underrepresented minority STEM majors on four-year college campuses to improve retention and graduation rates; and
- Expand opportunities for underrepresented minority STEM majors to participate in campus-based and national undergraduate research experiences.
