Welcome to MOLSAMP – WashU
Washington University in St. Louis is one of nine colleges and universities receiving a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to execute MOLSAMP, which is one of forty such programs in the country.
WashU’s MOLSAMP program offers direct mentoring to STEM and STEM-focused scholars, while WashU Engineering MOLSAMP Scholars are embedded in a larger Washington University Engineering Fellowship. A specific focus of the research experience at WashU is to provide exposure to STEM entrepreneurship as an additional pathway for STEM graduates.
What is MOLSAMP?
MOLSAMP is an alliance of nine colleges and universities in Missouri, funded by the NSF, who are collaborating to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students (URM) statewide who complete undergraduate and advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
Supporting URM pursing STEM
Here at WashU, we support URM students pursuing STEM through a variety of programs, activities, and community—building upon the cohesiveness among the individual alliance campuses to promote recruitment, retention and graduation of URM students.
