CSU-LSAMP Scholars Program

CSU-LSAMP has implemented a Student Scholar’s Program designed to increase the number of LSAMP students that enter graduate STEM programs by supporting undergraduate CSU-LSAMP students who have declared this interest in pursuing graduate study in STEM fields. The program provides students with up to $2,000 to support travel to visit graduate schools and to attend national research conferences. In addition, funds can be used to support graduate school applications, GRE preparation and research supplies.
