Midwest LSAMP Alliance Partners

The Center has partnered with six Midwest Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP). These partnerships harness the expertise and knowledge of LSAMP program administrators to identify and develop needed resources in the community. By pooling our resources, each project leverages more impacts per NSF-funded dollar spent. In addition, by bridging our networks we reach a broader audience of faculty mentors and URM STEM students.

Ohio LSAMP logo

The Ohio State University and nine additional Ohio colleges and universities will share over five years a $3.5 million National Science Foundation grant to help increase underrepresented student success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The grant, awarded through the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program, establishes an alliance that will work to double the number of bachelor’s degrees completed in STEM fields at partner institutions within five years. Diversifying the STEM workforce is one of the country’s major challenges, and the LSAMP grant will provide comprehensive, integrative, and sustainable strategies for strengthening the nation’s STEM talent pool.
