What is SCAMP?
SCAMP is the "South Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation"
Funding for SCAMP is received from the National Science Foundation funds for minority students (African American, Hispanic, and Native American) interested in pursuing a degree in science or math.
The SCAMP program is an academic enrichment program for underrepresented minorities who are majoring in science, technology, and mathematics (STEM) fields. SCAMP, which stands for South Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation, is partially funded by the National Science Foundation, the School of Science and Mathematics and the Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services. SCAMP program gives incoming minority students an opportunity to start their college program in the summer, participate in undergraduate research during their sophomore and junior years, and attend conferences and career orientations in their first year at the College of Charleston. The Summer Bridge component of SCAMP is held in conjunction with the Speedy Consolidation and Transition Program (SPECTRA) during the Summer II Session (July 12 – August 15, 2015).
