Opportunity LSAMP students engage in STEM research and internships at PSU and beyond.


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