STEM Scholars (Formally LSAMP)

Our Scholars are working to make our world a better place through STEM fields. 

Through LSAMP, scholars can explore options for STEM majors, transfer options, and network with other students and professionals, and find experiential learning opportuntiies (conference attendance, workshops, internships, etc.).

At the four year level, our Scholars are provided with research experiences and opportunities to expand skills in their field of interest which helps to build confidence, content knowledge, and a competitive edge when entering the workforce.
