Mote to Establish Center of Excellence for Increased Minority Participation

Business

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium has announced that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has granted a three-year, $1.5-million award for Mote to serve as the lead institution for establishing the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP): Marine Science Laboratory Alliance Center of Excellence (MarSci-LACE).

The LSAMP MarSci-LACE will serve as a nexus training, resource and supporting partner to other independent marine research institutions, degree granting institutions, LSAMP students and science mentors and faculty, with goals to: provide unique and authentic research and training opportunities to underrepresented, minority students that go beyond the training received by traditional degree-granting institutions; increase the number and preparedness of underrepresented minority students earning undergraduate degrees in marine sciences and related natural resources field; create resources and develop best practices to share among students, academic faculty, and independent marine research institution staff to improve academic and career retention and success in the marine sciences; and show the vital role that independent marine research institutions play in academic and early career recruitment, retention, and success.

Mote is the only non-academic institution to receive an LSAMP Center of Excellence award. For more information, click the link below.
