Description:
Welcome to the Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP) program. TLSAMP is a collaborative effort sustained by a coalition of six colleges and universities in the state of Tennessee to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students statewide. Students must complete undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.

This goal will be accomplished through the implementation of a comprehensive and integrated series of recruitment and retention initiatives that address key transition points from undergraduate recruitment through preparation for graduate school.

Students will be selected to participate by the TLSAMP staff at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters. Students who are majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math can participate in the TLSAMP program. Approxiately 30 mentors and 30 research assistance students will be accepted each semester.
