Summer LAMP Program Offered at McNeese
High school graduates who plan to pursue a bachelor's degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics at McNeese State University can apply now for the summer Louis Stokes-Louisiana Alliance for Minority Participation program being offered June 2-July 15 by the McNeese College of Science.
The major goal of the program is to increase the number of underrepresented groups of students receiving baccalaureate and graduate degrees in STEM areas, according to Dr. George Mead, dean of the college of science and director of the LS-LAMP program. "The program encourages African American, Hispanic, American Indian and Pacific Islander students to apply," said Mead.
Only 12 students will be selected for the six-week program, which includes textbooks, tuition and fees, housing and summer meal plan. "Students who successfully complete this program will receive college credit for the courses offered and a stipend of up to $1,000 based on their performance in the program," he said.
Eligible applicants must be 2010 high school graduates, have a 3.0 or better grade point average with an ACT composite score of at least 20 and a math score of 20 or higher, have completed Algebra I and II and geometry, in addition to pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in the STEM areas at McNeese.
