Scholar Levels

 KS-LSAMP Scholar Levels

KS-LSAMP Scholar

This is the initial level for KS-LSAMP scholars.

  • In order to enter this level students must apply to the program.
  • To continue as a KS-LSAMP, scholar students must participate in KS-LSAMP events (1 KS-LSAMP organized event, 2 KS-LSAMP approved events) per semester OR participate in KS-LSAMP approved activities

After the minimum number of events have been reached, KS-LSAMP scholars will immediately progress to Silver Scholar status

KS-LSAMP Silver Scholar

This is the second level for KS-LSAMP scholars. Once students reach this level, they are eligible to apply for:

  • Scholarships
  • Travel awards to scientific conferences

Additionally, as a KS-LSAMP Silver scholar students will receive priority status when volunteering for events

KS-LSAMP Gold Scholar

This is the third and final level for KS-LSAMP scholars. Students who have been awarded scholarship funds from the KS-LSAMP program will be designated as Gold scholars. There is a one-year commitment to continue in the program after receiving funds. Benefits of becoming a Gold scholar are:

  • Financial assistance through scholarships
