Academic enrichment
LSAMP Scholars hold tutoring sessions for its members and for other students.
An example of this is the weekly tutorial sessions held over a 10-week period each
semester.
 Research
Research of any kind is encouraged among members; those who do are
encouraged to present their work at local, state, regional, and national
conferences. A great example is the research study abroad trip to India with a
focus of study in Biotechnology.
 Outreach
STEM sponsors community outreach activities with the local schools to help
ensure that entering college students are well prepared to meet the rigors of
college studies. Examples of these activities include a summer science camp
for middle school students, and a summer research camp for high school
students.
 Leadership
STEM scholars are assisted in developing the leadership skills needed to ensure
their own undergraduate academic success. They develop these skills by fully
managing the STEM Scholars Program, and attending a variety of conferences,
Ex: Medical College of Georgia Conference, Washington BEYA conference
Stipend
LSAMP Scholars will obtain stipends through funds of the LSAMP
program. Requirements: must be an underrepresented minority and have a GPA
of at least 2.8. The amount of each stipend will be determined by the quality
and quantity of time devoted to research. Stipends generally range between
$200-$500.
