Apply to be an LSAMP Scholar

The application page for summer 2018 scholars will be available later in the Fall 2017 semester.  Students who have completed their freshman year by May 2018 and have a GPA of 2.5 or above, are invited to participate in our faculty-mentored summer research program.  This 10-week program pairs LSAMP scholars with a faculty mentor to conduct research.  Scholars are expected to participate in All-Scholar events throughout the summer as well as present a poster on their research at the end of the summer period.

LSAMP scholars receive financial compensation as well as a laboratory supply allowance.  We accept applications from majors in the following STEM disciplines.
