Who are we?

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) is an initiative funded by the National Science Foundation which is intended to double the number of African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Alaska Native and Pacific Islander students receiving baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in a five-year period.

The Louis Stokes North Star STEM Alliance is the Minnesota branch of this nation-wide program.  Aside from receiving funding from NSF, we also receive funding from 3M to support Southeast Asians along with the rest of our cohort, providing stipends, travel opportunities, research funding, and more to students who join our cohort.
