Our Mission

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program is committed to supporting the success of students from historically underrepresented groups pursuing and earning a bachelor's degree in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). With support from the National Science Foundation and the Provost's Office at PSU, we provide mentorship, activities, events, and opportunities for students at Portland State University or from our local community colleges.

PSU LSAMP students


Since 2009, LSAMP has supported hundreds of students in their academic journey at PSU. These students join our welcoming community of peers and advocates. They regularly use the LSAMP Center, perform independent research in labs, or secure internships in technology and engineering fields.
