The NSF Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of students successfully completing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) baccalaureate degree programs, and 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. The program goals are accomplished through the formation of alliances. Phase I awards place emphasis on aggregate baccalaureate production. Phase II awards augment the Phase I emphasis with attention to individual student retention and progression to baccalaureate degrees. Phase III awards augment the Phase I and Phase II with attention to aggregate student progression to graduate school entry.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, June 22, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include the following: 1) listing of anticipated partner institution(s); 2) plans for significant increases in the recruitment, retention, degree conferral, and STEM career entry of underrepresented minority students; 3) linkages to other NSF-funded programs; and 4) plans for project evaluation.


Awards will range from up to $2.5 million to $5 million over 5 years.
