Empowering YOU to achieve academic and personal success

AMP Program

The All Nations Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (ANSLAMP) is funded by the National Science Foundation, with the goal of increasing the number of Native American students successfully completing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This goal is accomplished through direct participant support and collaborations with partner institutions. ANLSAMP is designed to serve a geographically diverse alliance of 11 state and private institutions and 25 tribal colleges and universities located within 13 states.

  • A quarterly stipend ($200 to $600)

With NSF funding, ANSLAMP provides eudational and professional development opportunities by:
