The goal of the 9-University, NSF Garden State - Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (GS-LSAMP) is to recruit, retain, and graduate increased numbers of Science and Math professionals in order to produce a better-trained, more diversified 21st century STEM workforce.
New LSAMP members will receive a $100 stipend added to their Gothic Cards in exchange for attending at least 6 LSAMP activities, such as:
Members will be credited an additional $25 for each NEW LSAMP member YOU recruit (until spaces are filled).
As you develop prowess in your STEM major, you will be among an elite group of students to be considered for service as Peer Tutors or Mentors, who earn $15 / hour.
Along with significant financial support, LSAMP tutors and mentors develop valuable skills while helping their fellow majors persist at NJCU:
Being an LSAMP Scholar also provides opportunities to have international experiences at laboratories through special programs that provide financial support. Scholars also qualify for the Bridges to the Doctorate program which allows attendance at any one of a number of universities with exceptional financial support for two years just to take courses and a commitment from the department for support throughout the graduate career.
