CSU-LSAMP Program Participation

Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation For Undergraduate Students in the California State University system

The CSU-LSAMP Program is a comprehensive, statewide program dedicated to increasing the number of students from underrepresented minority groups (URM) graduating from campuses of the California State University (CSU) with baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Initiated in 1994, the CSU-LSAMP Alliance currently consists of 22 of the 23 campuses of the CSU. The Senior Phase of CSU-LSAMP proposed a continued emphasis on activities designed to enhance graduate school preparedness of upper division students.

General Eligibility & Selection Criteria

Undergraduate Program

Eligibility for the CSU-LSAMP program is restricted to students who face social, educational, or economic barriers to careers in STEM.

To be eligible to participate in CSU-LSAMP, students must be

  • a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident;
  • enrolled at a participating campus in an undergraduate major in a STEM discipline or have expressed an interest in pursuing a STEM baccalaureate degree;
  • an individual who has faced or faces social, educational, or economic barriers to careers in STEM.

Although the project's goals and anticipated outcomes are stated in terms of improving URM participation in STEM, it is important to emphasize that CSU-LSAMP does not limit participation to URM students or provide URM students preference in admisstion.
