LSAMP Foundation

Fara Williams has worked with Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) programs for over 13 years. She worked for eight and a half years for the Oklahoma alliance and has been director of the Kentucky-West Virginia alliance since October 2015. In that time, Fara has mentored and supported hundreds of students and connected with dozens of faculty and staff across the country. LSAMP programs have been around for almost 30 years and have thousands of alumni. LSAMP programs are funded by federal grants and have limitations on how funds are spent as well as the number of funds available. The proposed foundation would reach out to alumni and others in order to raise funds that can be utilized to support activities and purchases that cannot be covered by the federal funds. This foundation will begin with activities in the region but will grow to become a national organization.  If interested in joining my team, connect with me at fara.williams@uky.edu
