About the Program
Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) is a grant overseen by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Its purpose is to build practices to promote retention and recruitment for underrepresented populations, particularly in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math fields.
Facilitated Study Groups (FSG)
There are currently FSG’s in Circuit Theory, Computer Science, Math, and Physics/Chemistry. FSG’s offer an open resource location where students seeking help can find faculty and Teachers Assistants to help teach them in the subject matter they may need extra help in. WIT students can use the room as a place to work in groups or have individual questions answered.
LSAMP funding provides stipend money for 10 chosen AMP scholars for outstanding participation in the Wentworth community. AMP Scholars meet monthly to discuss what they have been doing within the community as well as participate in workshops around research skill development, faculty mentoring, and graduate school applications.
