Tennessee LSAMP is a National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored program with the mission to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minorities receiving degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Our alliance consists of six institutions, with Tennessee State University serving as the lead institution. With a student focus in mind, each institution provides services that assist underrepresented minorities with the transition from high school to college, integrate them socially and academically into the university environment, and engage them in research and summer internship opportunities.
