If you’re interested in an internship opportunity, applications for the NMC Hatsa IOA-LSAMP Internship Program is now open to enrolled students at Northern Marianas College as a science major, and an underrepresented minority (URM) student in particular African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders.
The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program was mandated by Congress in 1991 and was designed to facilitate historically underrepresented students pursuing baccalaureate and graduate degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Today, there are 40 LSAMP Alliances across the United States with more than 500 participating institutions throughout the country. The Islands of Opportunity – LSAMP (IOA–LSAMP) represents the only LSAMP Alliance serving the US-affiliated Pacific region.
IOA-LSAMP is committed to increasing the number of underrepresented minority students—especially students of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander ancestry—graduating with two- and four-year degrees in STEM disciplines and comprises 11 partner institutions across the Pacific, including: American Samoa Community College, College of the Marshall Islands, College of Micronesia—FSM, Chaminade University of Honolulu, Guam Community College, Hawaiʻi Pacific University, Northern Marianas College, Palau Community College, University of Guam, University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, and University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
