About

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) at Northeastern University creates a pathway to help ensure student success in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). LSAMP supports NU students currently enrolled in STEM programs by providing undergraduate research opportunities, academic support, and preparation for graduate school. Additional initiatives supported by LSAMP focus on encouraging traditionally under-represented students from urban communities to enter the STEM fields and ensuring their success.  NU students also have the option of community service, and leadership development activities.

The Northeastern University LSAMP is a member of the Northeast Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NE-LSAMP) program. This regional alliance is comprised of five partners: Northeastern University, University of Connecticut, University of Massachusetts Amherst, University of Rhode Island, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
