Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation


Partnership Among Universities to Improve STEM Student Retention

TLSAMP is a collaborative effort sustained by a coalition of six colleges and universities in the state of Tennessee to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students statewide. Students must complete undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.

This goal will be accomplished through the implementation of a comprehensive and integrated series of recruitment and retention initiatives from undergraduate recruitment through preparation for graduate school.

Welcome to VU TLSAMP

Vanderbilt TLSAMP offers the following student support services: tutoring, mentoring, a summer bridge program, a research conference, undergraduate research opportunities, internship opportunities, and student stipends.

If you are a minority student majoring in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics you are encourage to become an active participant in the TLSAMP program. If you have any questions about the TLSAMP program, please call me at 615-343-8061 or email me at
