Named for a pioneering leader.

Inspiring More minority STEM innovators.

Louis Stokes was a pivotal leader in the quest for civil rights, equality, and social and economic justice throughout his lifetime as a public servant in the United States Congress. In his honor, the National Science Foundation established the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program in 1991 to increase the number of under-represented minority students with degrees in STEM related fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). This critical program encourages minority students to achieve Baccalaureate degrees and to not stop there — but to push further for a graduate education in STEM fields.  

Today, there are 34 Louis Stokes Alliances with more than 450 participating institutions involved in this program. The University of Memphis is proud to be one of six institutions of higher education partnered in Tennessee's Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP).

At the UofM our goal is to increase the number of minorities pursuing STEM degrees by at least 100% within a five-year period through heavy recruitment and a stronger focus on support given to minority students, including:

  • Tutorial programs
  • Mentoring programs
  • Supplemental instructions
  • Student support
  • Undergraduate research opportunities

If you are student majoring in a STEM area (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) feel free to fill out an application or contact us for more information.
