The LSAMP program at Oregon State University, funded by the National Science Foundation, is dedicated to increasing the number of traditionally underrepresented students successfully completing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) baccalaureate degree programs. At the same time, LSAMP also works to increase the number of students interested in and qualified for undergraduate research graduate level studies.
OSU LSAMP seeks to integrate students into the academic life at Oregon State and into their chosen discipline in a way that will foster growth and success. Students are provided with financial, academic, social, and professional support in a coordinated effort to help them achieve their academic and professional goals. Programming includes a residential bridge program for incoming freshman, mentor program, Second-year & Transfer Experience Program, tutoring, workshops, a student center (219 Johnson Hall), and undergraduate research funding.
