Welcome to the Florida Georgia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (FGLSAMP)

 

Overview:
Welcome to the Florida Georgia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (FGLSAMP) website. FGLSAMP is a collaborative effort sustained by a coalition of 14 colleges and universities throughout Florida (13) and Georgia(1) with a mission to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students statewide who complete undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. FGLSAMP proposes to significantly expand its STEM talent pool through greater collaboration among the 14 partner institutions and enhanced practices that: 

  1. Increase student retention and graduation in STEM disciplines;  
  2. Prepare and matriculating FGLSAMP community college students to pursue degrees in STEM disciplines at the baccalaureate level and beyond; 
  3. Provide significant STEM international research opportunities;  
  4. Enhance preparation of FGLSAMP undergraduate participants for STEM Career and graduate education opportunities. 

FGLSAMP will augment its current STEM socialization practices to achieve these key guide posts, which are at the heart of all FGLSAMP academic enhancement and professional development activities. This goal will be accomplished through the implementation of integrated series of academic enhancement and professional development initiatives at key transition points. The promotion of undergraduate research and preparation for graduate school will be a key component of the comprehensive strategies implemented.

Florida A&M University serves as the lead institution of this 14 institution alliance.  Each FGLSAMP institution provides services to underrepresented minorities that assist students to: 

  1. Acclimate to the college environment; 
  2. Integrate socially and academically into the university environment; and
  3. Engage in research and internship opportunities

FGLSAMP provides services such as academic enrichment; financial support; peer and faculty mentoring. We welcome you to join FGLSAMP and explore the wonderful and exciting possibilities through Science; Technology; Engineering; and Mathematics.  

FGLSAMP is a National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored program.
