The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is federally funded by the National Science Foundation. The program assists colleges and universities in their efforts to significantly increase the numbers of underrepresented minority* (URM) students enrolling in and successfully completing high quality degree programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines to diversify the STEM workforce.
The Metro Denver STEM Alliance is made up of the five metro area community colleges, including, Arapahoe Community College, Community College of Aurora, Community College of Denver, Front Range Community College, and Red Rocks Community College. The Metro Denver STEM Alliance, in collaboration with four-year university and industry partners, aim to support students' pathways in STEM to increase transfer rates to Bachelor degree programs.
Whether you are interested in entering a STEM program or already have a STEM degree in mind, there are a number of benefits to becoming a LSAMP Scholar. From mentorship to college visits to internships, our LSAMP Scholars are provided with individualized advising to help achieve their academic and career goals.
