The CSU-LSAMP program is supported by funds from the National Science Foundation, the CSU Office of the Chancellor, and the 23 participating CSU campuses. The goals of this program are to (1) increase the number of targeted students who graduate with degrees in the sciences, technology, engineering, or math (STEM, and (2) increase the number of targeted students who progress to graduate degrees in STEM. The targeted students are individuals who have faced or face social, educational, or economic barriers to careers in STEM.

Several strategies are employed to meet this goal including encouraging participation in academic year workshops in key "gatekeeper" courses, assistance with admission to graduate schools (GRE workshops, application help, fee waivers, etc.) and funds to attend research conferences. Students are also encouraged to engage in an independent research experience with a faculty member for which they can receive a scholarship and/or course credit.
