At CSUF there are two different classifications within LSAMP: Research Scholar and Participant. The academic year for LSAMP begins September 1st and closes August 31st of the following year.  Applications for participants are accepted year round. The classifications are defined below:


This individual is a part of LSAMP and can also be funded by another undergraduate research program at CSUF. This individual does not receive any funding for conducting research and is not required to perform research. We hope that participants can quickly move to become a funded research student. 

Research Scholar

During the academic year, the  research commitment is a minimum of 8-10 hours per week. The research student can receive a research scholarship up to $4,000.
