The central focus of the LSAMP program is to increase the quality and quantity of students successfully completing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) baccalaureate degree programs, and to increase the number of students interested in, academically qualified for and matriculated into programs of graduate study. LSAMP supports sustained and comprehensive approaches that facilitate achievement of the long-term goal of increasing the number of students who earn doctorates in STEM fields, particularly those from populations underrepresented in STEM fields. The program goals are accomplished through the formation of alliances. Phase I awards place emphasis on aggregate baccalaureate production. Phase II awards augment the Phase I emphasis with attention to individual student retention and progression to baccalaureate degrees. Phase III awards augment the Phase I and Phase II with attention to aggregate student progression to graduate school entry.

The Georgia Alabama LSAMP Partner institutions include Clark Atlanta University (CAU), the lead institution, Georgia State University, and Morehouse, Paine, and Atlanta Metropolitan Colleges. Between 1991-1995 and 1997-2001, the Georgia Alabama LSAMP was among the Nation's top alliances in sending its baccalaureate recipients to become Black STEM doctoral degree holders. The unifying themes of the Phase II program include focused recruitment and retention, required research participation, student financial support, and graduate school enrollment. The Georgia Alabama LSAMP in Phase II will significantly increase the number of STEM baccalaureate degrees, impact more than 15,000 undergraduates, increase the number of undergraduate degree recipients entering graduate school each year by 10 percent, and increase retention each year by 10 percent. Student objectives for Phase II include pre-transfer bridge activities for two-year college students, required research participation for all LSAMP scholars, and completion of research experiences by at least 50 percent of all baccalaureate degree recipients. Faculty objectives include providing opportunities to improve instruction skills, such as using new technologies, and becoming more effective mentors. Curriculum objectives are designed to revise introductory courses as a mechanism to improve retention.
