Oregon State LSAMP has two official community college partners, Chemeketa Community College and Linn-Benton Community College, though we work to build partnerships with all community colleges in the state of Oregon and beyond. To ensure the transition to Oregon State is as seamless as possible, we offer transfer advising and support to students who plan to pursue a STEM degree at Oregon State University. Community college students should connect with LSAMP staff and resources early on in their academic career to take advantage of financial, academic, social and professional support designed to help them achieve their academic and professional goals.

LSAMP Scholar program

Through our partnerships with Chemeketa and Linn-Benton Community Colleges, we seek to integrate prospective transfer students into the academic life of their chosen discipline in a way that will foster growth and success. LSAMP Scholars are community college students who are on track to transfer to Oregon State University for a degree in a STEM field. All Scholars receive a $1000 scholarship for participation in the program.
