UMLSAMP's mission is to significantly increase the number of minority students who successfully complete high-quality degree programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
The Urban Massachusetts Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (UMLSAMP) is designed to create an integrated community of science, culture and learning for underrepresented students majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields at the alliance institutions.
UMLSAMP is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by the University of Massachusetts Boston.
Seven additional institutions of higher education participate. These include:
During the spring and fall semesters, selected students work on-campus along with UMass Lowell faculty on STEM-related research. These are paid internships, if the student meets the criteria of the project.
