Research mentors can be in any college. Students must meet LSAMP eligibility requirements. Note: Blended B.S./M.S. students are LSAMP eligible, but students who have been awarded their B.S. degree are not.

Applicants who will be enrolled in Summer and/or Fall 2021 will be prioritized for selection over students who are scheduled to graduate in June 2021.

Students and their faculty mentors are encouraged to identify projects that can be completed remotely where possible during the time period in which Cal Poly has limited access to campus due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In limited cases in which this is not possible, funded student researchers must work with their faculty mentors to request university approval via existing processes and follow all campus COVID-19 prevention and safety protocols, including frequent handwashing, cleaning protocols, physical distancing, and wearing a face covering. More information can be found on the Research, Economic Development & Graduate Education website. Faculty mentors must also have all participants sign a safety acknowledgement.

Please contact lsamp@calpoly.edu with questions and/or to request review of application materials.
