This program is aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of students successfully completing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) baccalaureate degree programs, and increasing the number of students interested in, academically qualified for and matriculated into programs of graduate study. LSAMP supports sustained and comprehensive approaches that facilitate achievement of the long-term goal of increasing the number of students who earn doctorates in STEM fields, particularly those from populations underrepresented in STEM fields.
UT-System LSAMP Mission:
- Increase the number of undergraduate students acquiring bachelors in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEMs)
- Increase the number of advanced degrees obtained by undergraduate students in the STEM disciplines especially students from underrepresented groups.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) supports the LSAMP program. NSF funds research and education in most fields of science and engineering that are administrated through formed alliances between universities and colleges.
