Kean University


The GS-LSAMP program provides you with a learning community to increase success and opportunities in the non-medical fields of science, mathematics, engineering and technology. The Kean University Program is part o an alliance that includes 9 schools in central and northern New Jersey that work together to achieve these goals. The GS-LSAMP employs a unique clustering system for local opportunities among neighboring institutions. These provide students with many local opportunities for enrichment, research and employment.

STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are challenging yet rewarding and stable careers. Most of the problems that our world faces are addressed directly by professionals in STEM areas. Whether it is global warming, alternative energy production, food systems, cures for diseases, information technology, or space travel, it requires a core supply of STEM professionals for success.

In order to meet these challenges, the GS-LSAMP project was devised. The program incorporates inter-disciplinary science and activities that make use of the wide diversity found in the STEM areas and that is essential for analytic and systematic consideration of these global issues.

The GS-LSAMP program is funded by the National Science Foundation. The program is designed to significantly increase the number of professionals in STEM fields from minority groups who are traditionally underrepresented. The program is designed to provide support services at many levels to help interested students become successful in STEM fields. The program consists of 41 LSAMP alliances nationwide and is considered to be one of the most successful of its kind.


GS-LSAMP Student Scholars have access to several outstanding program features to help them complete a degree in STEM fields. Through a variety of opportunities students are more competitively prepared for the job market and graduate studies.
