As one of the six oldest National Science Foundation (NSF) alliances in the nation, the Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (ALSAMP) strives through its twelve member institutions to increase the quality and quantity of under-represented minority students completing baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The interaction of ALSAMP students and faculty and the facilities are advantageous for all. The undergraduate institutions benefit from having their students participate in research experiences with research faculty, while the research institutions have the opportunity to work with, identify and recruit highly qualified minority students seeking to attend graduate school. The diversity of the Alliance - Historically Black Colleges/Universities, majority institutions, public and private institutions and research and teaching institutions - boast a new era of cooperation as the Alliance seeks to maximize learning opportunities and increase the achievement bar for all ALSAMP students.

The Alabama Alliance was the first NSF alliance to develop and implement the following programs and activities: LSAMP Scholars Program, Summer Bridge Program for High School Graduates, Summer Research Program for Undergraduate STEM Students, Graduate Bridge Program for Graduate School Bound Undergraduates, Drop-In Centers/Cooperative Learning Centers for STEM Students, The NSF Summer Research Conference for LSAMP Students and the NSF LSAMP Magazine.
