Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation


To be eligible to participate in Cal Poly's LSAMP program, students must:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident;
  • Be enrolled at Cal Poly in an undergraduate major in a STEM discipline ;
  • Be a member of a group that has traditionally been underrepresented in higher education or has faced or faces social, educational, or economic barriers to careers in STEM.

By participating in the CSU-LSAMP Program, you agree to have your name and address listed in a national directory of graduates in the STEM field during the year in which you expect to graduate.

Although the project's goals and anticipated outcomes are stated in terms of improving URM participation in STEM, it is important to emphasize that CSU-LSAMP does not limit participation to URM students or provide URM students preference in admisstion.
