LSAMP Mentor Program

LSAMP Mentoring Program

In addition to success coaching sessions with the LSAMP Program Coordinator, all LSAMP scholars engage in both peer mentoring and faculty mentoring.

Peer Mentoring

LSAMP peer mentors are LSAMP scholars with sophomore standing or higher that volunteer to serve as mentors for first-year LSAMP scholars. First-year scholars will connect with their peer mentor at least four times during their first academic year. Peer mentors serve as a resource to help answer questions first-year scholars might have about LSAMP, STEM courses, resources at OSU, or life at OSU in general. Whenever possible, first-year scholars will be paired with a peer mentor pursuing the same major or a similar major.

Faculty Mentoring

LSAMP scholars will have the opportunity to engage with an assigned faculty mentor during their first and second years in the LSAMP program. Each scholar will connect with their faculty mentor at least twice during the spring semester of their first year, and at least twice during each semester of their second year. Students will be matched with a faculty mentor, and they will be paired with a faculty member in their major or department whenever possible. Faculty members can help support LSAMP scholars by providing opportunities such as lab tours, information about research opportunities, and information about funding, study abroad, and other resources.

Individuals interested in becoming peer mentors or faculty mentors are encouraged to contact Ohio State LSAMP Program Coordinator, Abby Kincaid at
