Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation NYC LSAMP Alliance

About Us: The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) is a program created by the National Science Foundation (NSF) which aims to diversify the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by fostering the success of historically and currently underrepresented Native American, African American, Hispanic/Latino and Pacific Islander students in those fields. LSAMP is focused on increasing student interest in STEM degrees, guiding students through completion of their baccalaureates and facilitating their transition to advanced post-graduate studies or the STEM workforce.

To fulfill that mission, the NYC LSAMP Alliance has crafted a program centered on student participation in undergraduate research. NYC LSAMP Fellows are matched with faculty mentors to begin conducting research in their second year, for which they receive a stipend ($3,000/year). Students receive additional guidance from NYC LSAMP Faculty Coordinators through biweekly meetings and/or STEM-related professional development workshops on topics such as presentation skills, designing poster presentations, searching and completing REU/internship applications, etc. Most importantly, NYC LSAMP Fellows belong to a thriving and engaged community which is not confined to their home-campus – they have LSAMP peers throughout CUNY and numerous campuses nationwide. Fellows will have the opportunity to present their work at regional and national conferences, including the yearly Emerging Researchers National Conference in STEM.

NSF-S-STEM Scholarship

About Us:  National Science Foundation STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) scholarships are offered at both Bronx Community College and Lehman College and are designed to help students successfully complete a STEM major in college … ultimately leading to a career in one of these fields. Students not only receive a solid education, they can take advantage of a wide range of academic and financial benefits.

As advances in technology continue to reshape today’s workforce, STEM professionals are consistently in demand. It is estimated that jobs in fields relating to STEM will increase up to 62% by the year 2020, offering average starting salaries of $85,500 — nearly double the salaries compared to non-STEM jobs, whose average salaries are estimated to start around $47,200.

2024 Diversity Summer Research Training Program (DSRTP)

About DSRTP: The DSRTP Program provides an independent summer research experience at NIH laboratories to undergraduate students from groups under-represented in biomedical science or disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in research careers.

Research performed by the laboratories and branches of the NIDDK covers an extraordinarily diverse area but is unified by a commitment to excellence in both basic and clinical investigation. The basic science laboratories include outstanding groups in many facets of modern molecular biology, structural biology, including x-ray crystallography and NMR, cell biology, and pharmacology. Systems under study include viruses, prokaryotes and eukaryotes, including yeast and mammalian cells. Developmental biology is represented by studies ranging from those on cellular slime molds to those on mouse oocyte development. Several laboratories use the most up-to-date techniques in receptor pharmacology, natural products chemistry, and organic chemistry to study a wide variety of compounds, particularly neuroactive agents. Not only biochemical but also mathematical and physical chemical methods are applied to a variety of fundamental problems.

The clinical branches of NIDDK combine basic science and clinical investigation with patient care. Several branches study endocrine diseases and general aspects of signal transduction, including growth factor and hormone action. Molecular biologic and molecular genetic techniques have been used to elucidate specific gene mutations representing the underlying defect in a variety of diseases, including thyroid hormone resistance, certain forms of diabetes, and other disorders of signal transduction. Several NIDDK scientists have created transgenic and knockout mice models of human diseases.
