LAS-SciM Opportunities

CUNY Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP)

Applicants accepted to the NYC LSAMP ­program – designed to significantly increase the number of underrepresented students who graduate with first-rate degrees in science, technology, mathematics, and engineering – participate in a research methods course during Spring of their first year and are eligible for a second-year fellowship that provides a year-long mentored research opportunity and periodic events with LSAMP scholars from around CUNY.

CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP)

Interested LAS-SciM students may apply to conduct and assist in mentored research under CUNY faculty in biology and chemistry. Over one academic year, the CUNY Research Scholars Program provides funded laboratory experiences for Associate degree students to encourage undergraduate participation in authentic research and to increase persistence in STEM disciplines. Students receive 400 hours of mentoring from faculty members and participate in programming offered at their campuses, including sessions on laboratory safety, public speaking, and poster preparation. The program culminates in a CUNY-wide CRSP research symposium where students present their work to CUNY students, faculty, and guests.
