Due to the risks associated with large number of student participation under the current threat of Global Pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, we are cancelling the 11th Annual Undergraduate Research Day Event originally scheduled for Thursday April 30, 2020.


The NYC Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NYCLSAMP) is an alliance of 17 CUNY Colleges and the CUNY Graduate Center.

The NYC Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NYC-LSAMP) is an alliance of 16 CUNY Colleges and the CUNY Graduate Center. The Alliance goal is to substantially increase the number of underrepresented minority students who pursue and graduate with Baccalaureate Degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). From its inception in November 1992, the Alliance has been at the forefront of a concerted effort to increase annual Minority STEM enrollment and graduation in the City University of New York. The Alliance provides academic scholarship support to CUNY students majoring in the STEM disciplines, making research an integral part of STEM education in New York City.

LSAMP supports research training opportunities and academic support services for students to encourage greater participation in science, mathematics, and engineering and to boost academic excellence. For the faculty and students in the community colleges, this support is made possible through various financial incentives, including competitive faculty grants.
