The mission of the All Nations Alliance for Minority Participation is to increase the number of American Indians and other underrepresented minorities receiving a baccalaureate degree in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
The program, funded by the National Science Foundation, focuses on increasing the number of Native American students successfully completing degrees in STEM. This is accomplished through direct participant support and collaborations with our partner institutions. ANAMP is designed to serve a geographically diverse alliance of 34 colleges and universities. We provide financial stipends, conference travel assistance, and research opportunities to eligible AMP Scholars. Benefits are limited to students enrolled in qualified STEM degree programs at our partner institutions.
Students enrolled in an approved STEM discipline at one of our partner institutions can apply to the AMP Scholar Program. Benefits include financial support and reimbursed travel expenses to STEM conferences.
We know that hands-on research experiences increase competence. Therefore, we strive to connect AMP Scholars to quality domestic and international research experiences.
Resilience through Intercultural Skill Enhancement is an educational offering that imparts intercultural knowledge and skills to AMP Scholars. It will help students quickly recover from the difficulties they face when encountering cultural differences and change.
The Costa Rive International Research Experience (CRIRE) is a program offered in conjunction with the All Nations Alliance for Minority Participation (ANAMP) and the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS). The goal of CRIRE is to exchange research skills for students, enhance research and mentoring skills for faculty researchers, improve the participation rate in longer research programs by exposing students to a short term project, and the development of cultural capital of participants through cross-cultural and cross-institutional experiences.
