UAM RPMS - Site under construction!
Research Program for Minority Students
The Research Program for Minority Students at the University of Arkansas Monticello developed from a National Science Foundation grant that funded the Arkansas Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (ARK-LSAMP). The goal of ARK-LSAMP is to increase the number of under-represented minority students who graduate in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) and ultimately enter research careers. The UAM-RPMS expands upon the original concept of ARK-LSAMP by including students interested in biomedical sciences, such as Medical School.
We welcome applications from minority students who are
Already at UAM but switching majors to a STEM program
At UAM, we further the goals of RPMS through:
Student scholarships and stipends
Opportunities to engage in STEM research, with pay
Summer internships at research institutions
Specific instruction on research philosophy and methodology
A nurturing and engaging group atmosphere
Interested in becoming a part of the UAM ARK-LSAMP experience? Each RPMS freshman participant must:
Have a high school GPA or 3.0 or higher
Have a composite ACT score of 21 or above
Complete all application requirements for admission to UAM
Declare a major in one of the STEM fields of study at UAM
If you are a minority student applying for your freshman year at UAM with these qualifications and interests, consider applying for the RPMS program at UAM.
