Welcome to University of Georgia's Peach State LSAMP Page
The UGA Peach State LSAMP program is funded by the National Science Foundation and is designed to recruit, retain, graduate and encourage the pursuit of graduate school within underrepresented minority undergraduate students majoring in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
UGA – LSAMP General Scholars are participants in the program who attend professional development workshops, LSAMP meetings, scientific seminars, opening and closing programs, and social functions and are eligible for tutoring and GRE Test Prep. LSAMP Scholars are encouraged to attend regional and national research conferences and are required to attend the annual Peach State LSAMP Fall Symposium and Research Conference. During the program, LSAMP Scholars are responsible for completing and returning additional paperwork necessary for verification of community service hours. General Scholars must participate in no less than 80% of all activities held each semester to remain eligible for their stipend award. Scholars must notify the Campus Coordinator with at least a week's advance notice of any potential absences and scheduling conflicts with LSAMP programming. If an LSAMP Scholar fails to attend at least 80% of activities, s/he will lose funding. If a scholar’s GPA falls below a 2.75, s/he will loose funding but is still able to attend all events and utilize all other services. All scholars must re-apply for LSAMP funding each semester. Stipend award funding is only offered during the Fall and Spring semesters.
UGA – LSAMP Participant (non-funded) are students who attend programs and workshops and are on the Waitlist. Students, who have dedicated themselves to LSAMP and remain within the STEM disciplines, will be selected from the waitlist if/when funding becomes available.
