Information & Alumni


LSAMP programs are sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The first six Alliances for Minority Participation (AMP) programs were created in 1991. Louis Stokes was a congressman from Ohio for over 30 years. In 1998, congress added his name to the programs.

The Louis Stokes Midwest Center of Excellence was created in 2012 to communicate best practices, tools, and information garnered from the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) consortium to a broader audience.

In 2018, LSMCE became the Louis Stokes Midwest Regional Center of Excellence and five other LSAMP centers were created.
