Illinois Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Main Content

We are pleased to invite eligible SIU Carbondale undergraduates to apply to be a participant through Illinois Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (ILSAMP) program funded by the National Science Foundation. ILSAMP has the goal of increasing participation of undergraduates from underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines.

The original P.I. of ILSAMP was Karen Renzaglia, PhD, Professor at the Plant Biology-SIUC and the current P.I. is Rodrigo Carramiñana, PhD, Director of the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (CURCA).


For a student to be eligible s/he must:

  • Be African-American, Hispanic American, Native American or Pacific Islander
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5
  • Be enrolled at SIUC in a STEM major for NSF-supported disciplines

Funds may be provided on a competitive basis for students to conduct research and attend professional meetings. Preference will be given to undergraduates who are interested in pursuing graduate work in STEM fields. The SIU Carbondale ILSAMP program will also sponsor professional enrichment activities throughout the academic year, and we will distribute information on these events as they are organized.
