About the Summer Camp

The camp is made possible by an award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal of the award is to significantly increase the number of historically underrepresented minorities receiving baccalaureate degrees in STEM.

Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is leading the $4.8 million Indiana STEM Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) initiative. The alliance is comprised of six institutions across Indiana, Ball State University, Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana University Northwest, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Indiana University South Bend, and Ivy Tech Community College, Indianapolis.

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is designed to substantially increase the quantity and quality of students, especially underrepresented students, who study STEM disciplines. LSAMP offers identified STEM majors who qualify the opportunity to receive a stipend while conducting research in their major.
