Our Mission: Better Representation in STEM
Named in honor of former U.S. Congress member Louis Stokes, WSU LSAMP is an National Science Foundation-funded program that serves students from groups that are historically underrepresented in STEM fields as they pursue their educational and professional goals. The program at WSU Pullman offers awards for mentored research, hosts networking and social events, collaborates with partner programs, and welcomes guest experts to present workshops on STEM and other topics relevant to students’ success.
WSU is one of five institutions offering baccalaureate degrees in the Pacific Northwest LSAMP community. Each university has a PNW LSAMP partnering community college. WSU LSAMP’s partner is Yakima Valley Community College.
