Mount Saint Mary College

Mount Saint Mary College is one of seven Catholic institutions in the Hudson Valley to secure a five-year, $3.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program.

The grant was awarded to Malloy University, which is the leader of seven institutions from the Lower Hudson Valley Catholic Colleges and Universities Consortium (LHVCCUC), an alliance of private Catholic colleges and universities across New York State. In addition to Molloy and the Mount, the other colleges and universities participating in the program are Manhattan College, St. Francis College, St. John’s University, St. Joseph’s University New York, and St. Thomas Aquinas College.

Over the course of the next five years, the grant aims to increase the presence of underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields in the seven colleges. The program will have a director housed at Molloy, with a steering committee represented by members from each institution. 

The LSAMP program provides funding to alliances that implement comprehensive, evidence-based, innovative, and sustained strategies that ultimately result in the graduation of well-prepared, highly competitive students who pursue graduate studies or careers in STEM.
