The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) is designed to increase the quality and number of students from under-represented minority groups who complete undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This program is funded by the National Science Foundation with the long-term goal of increasing the number of under-represented students who enter STEM professions and who earn doctorates in the STEM fields. LSAMP Alliances across the country are designed to provide support services at many levels to help interested students succeed in STEM majors and careers and to provide networks with other LSAMP Scholars. Essex County College is part of the Garden State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation.
Through the LSAMP Program at ECC, students are given the opportunity to interact in the scientific community. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, research experiences in science labs both at ECC and at the research science laboratories of several NJ universities, Summer STEM Internships which will give students hands-on experience in their field, Mentoring Program for students in STEM courses and participation in science conferences where STEM majors are able to meet and network with other students and present their research projects to the scientific community.
