Welcome to the official California Louis Stokes Alliance For Minority Participation (LSAMP) website, locally known as CAMP. Whether you are a student, parent, or faculty member, we hope you will find the information you are looking for. The CAMP Program works to offer academic opportunities and support for students within the UCI academic community and beyond!
[Summer 2017] Be a CAMPer!
The CAMP Office is open Monday through Friday 8AM to 5PM! Come in and visit the office if you need a quiet place to study, use the computer lab, or just say “Hi”! Don’t forget to update each quarter in order to be a part of CAMP. Come by the office and fill out an update form, or print out the Student Update Form and turn it in to the office.
[Summer 2017] Mentoring
During the summer we do not offer mentoring. However, we do offer mentoring/tutoring across all STEM fields throughout the school year. Our goal is to have a finalized mentor schedule by Week 1 of Fall 2017.
Transfer and high school students should refer to the Office of Admissions regarding deadlines and financial aid information.
If you are a STEM student looking for ways to strengthen your skills, then get involved with LSAMP-CAMP at UC Irvine to assist you with your academic goals!
Entering freshmen may apply to the CAMP Summer Science Academy (CSSA) once admitted to UC Irvine under one of the following schools:
- Physical Sciences

The California LSAMP (locally known as CAMP) in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), is a statewide initiative funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The objective of CAMP is to strengthen the quality and quantity of underrepresented students receiving degrees in STEM. Visit the Services page to look at the many resources we offer to our students.
We offer a variety of programs for our students to get involved. From our CAMP Summer Science Academy for incoming freshmen to CAMP Summer Research Scholars; we offer programs to students that will put them down on the road to success.
Throughout the year, CAMP hosts many events for students to volunteer. We also sponsor students to present their research at national conferences. Check out this page for upcoming events and conferences and become a CAMP active student.
