About the Louis Stokes STEM Pathways and Research Alliance: Pacific Northwest (PNW LSAMP)

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 under The Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity (OMA&D). In the winter of 2019, The purpose of LSAMP is to integrate academic and social supports to build community, engage underrepresented minority (URM) students in undergraduate research, and increase their entry into advanced STEM degree programs and professional careers. By affiliating with LSAMP, current students have access to internships, paid research opportunities and much more.
