Elevate your STEM journey with LSAMP

LSAMP students

Prepare for the high-demand career fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in the Urban Massachusetts Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program at Bristol Community College. 

LSAMP is designed to create a community of science, culture and learning for underrepresented students majoring in STEM fields. 

LSAMP encourages students to enter and successfully complete STEM degree programs. Bristol’s collaborations with local universities set the pathway for students to seamlessly transition from an associate degree to baccalaureate and graduate study.  

Funding thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation.
