The University System of Maryland’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Bridge to the Doctorate (LSAMP BD) Program, which includes UMBC and the University of Maryland College Park, honors the life and legacy of Congressman Louis Stokes (February 23, 1925 – August 18, 2015), for whom the LSAMP program is named. Stokes was the first African-American congressman in Ohio. He was a champion for the social and economic justice, received awards for his work on racial and ethnic diversity, and advocated for expanding opportunities to those who are underreprepresented. The USM BD program salutes Louis Stokes. The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Bridge to the Doctorate BD Program at UMBC received its first award for 12 fellows in 2005. UMBC’s LSAMP BD program is part of the University System of Maryland’s program, and alternates proposal years with the University of Maryland College Park.
