Augsburg STEM Programs are designed to support undergraduate students who are pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math. This can encompass a number of majors including physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, biopsychology, biochemistry, and mathematics. To maintain and enhance Augsburg’s vital STEM community, this office provides students with opportunities to conduct research with faculty, attend and present at national conferences, and hear from leading researchers in these fields.
More than 400 students pursue STEM majors at Augsburg. Some 98 percent of traditional undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid from Augsburg. Through the PRISM STEM Scholarships Program from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the University offers of up to $10,000 per year on top of Augsburg-funded aid.

The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program, also funded through NSF, provides funding to support stipends, undergraduate research, and student travel to conferences. The overall goal of the program is to assist universities and colleges in diversifying the nation’s STEM workforce by increasing the number of STEM baccalaureate and graduate degrees awarded to populations historically underrepresented in these disciplines as defined by NSF.
