Campbell and SWOSU Receive NSF Award for Minority Participation Program
September 11, 2009
Southwestern Oklahoma State University and Dr. Brian Campbell, chemistry and physics professor, have received $12,141 for the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology program.
The award for the SWOSU campus in Weatherford came from the National Science Foundation through Oklahoma State University.
The LSAMP-OKAMP program is designed to address underrepresented minority students pursuing advanced degrees in science, mathematics, engineering and technology. The ultimate goal of the program is to encourage minority students to pursue advanced degrees leading to research or teaching positions.
To earn stipend support, students must participate in a Scholar Seminar series designed to help students prepare for success in graduate school. Advanced students are then placed with a mentor to help carry out their research. They present the research project results to local, statewide and national audiences.
