The program offers research assistantships and fellowships to participating students, peer and faculty mentoring, and many other educational activities.
Students who are full time students, are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and are Black, Hispanic, American Indian, Alaskan Native or Native Pacific Islander are eligible for the NYC-LSAMP research assistantship. Once accepted into the program students can receive up to $5,000 at the undergraduate level, $7,000 at the graduate level, and $15,000 at the doctoral level. Also, mentors receive a $250 incentive per student towards your lab. The application deadline for Summer and Fall research in 2013 is May 3th.
