Become an OK-LSAMP Scholar
Oklahoma Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (OK-LSAMP) is a consortium of Oklahoma colleges and universities working together to develop
programs aimed at increasing the number of students from under-represented populations
who receive degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
The OK-LSAMP scholarship program provides scholars with increased opportunities and
connections, including undergraduate research experiences, graduate school preparation,
international experiences and internships/externships with companies in the STEM fields.
Students have the option to travel the world and experience new cultures through study
abroad opportunities, all while earning college credit. These can include short-term,
faculty-led courses that travel over spring break or a few weeks in the summer, as
