Minority students at Northwestern have the opportunity to participate in LS-OKAMP. The Louis Stokes Oklahoma Alliance for Minority Participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (LS-OKAMP STEM) program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The program is specifically designed to significantly increase the number of baccalaureate degrees in science, mathematics, engineering and technology earned by individuals from groups who are underrepresented in these areas. Supported activities include, among others, student enrichment, such as collaborative learning, skill development, and mentoring; academic enrichment, such as curricular and instructional improvement; and direct student support, such as summer activities.
Minority students have the opportunity to work with faculty members. Students create cooperative agreements with the University for this grant and must satisfy certain requirements. For more information, contact Dr. Tim Maharry, the LS-OKAMP campus coordinator for Northwestern.
