The primary goal of the Houston LSAMP, propelled by a partnership among the National Science Foundation, the University of Houston, Texas Southern University, Texas State University, Rice University, the University of Houston-Downtown, the University of Houston-Victoria, the Houston Community College System, the San Jacinto College District, the Houston Independent School District, and numerous corporations, is to significantly increase, within five years, the number of minority students earning baccalaureate degrees each year in STEM fields from the participating universities and prepare them for entry to graduate programs.

The H-LSAMP is currently entering its 13th year of helping underrepresented minorities in STEM. Along with recruiting top students, there has been an increased focus on the transfer of students from community colleges and the retention of students at each site. H-LSAMP scholars have the opportunity to conduct research, peer tutor, lead interactive workshops, and travel to national conferences.
