Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (GA-AL LSAMP)
The Georgia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (GALSAMP) was established in 1997 with Clark Atlanta University as the lead institution. The other partner institutions included: Atlanta Metropolitan College, Georgia State University, Morehouse College, Morris Brown College, Paine College, and Spelman College.
The overarching goal of the new Georgia – Alabama LSAMP (GA-AL LSAMP) is to increase the quantity and quality of underrepresented minority (URM) students who earn associate and baccalaureate degrees. Realizing the continuing need to increase the quantity and quality of URM graduates in the STEM fields, the GA-AL LSAMP alliance will expand its alliance partners from five to nine institutions: Lawson State Community College, Drake State Technical College, University of West Georgia, and Spelman to meet the goals of the Georgia LSAMP program.
To build on prior accomplishments, the new $3.5 million grant will expand the alliance to, nine partners having collectively prepared approximately 524 STEM baccalaureate graduates. The alliance with two additional two-year colleges and two additional four-year institutions will work collaboratively to accomplish the alliance goals.
