Tufts LSAMP explores Shanghai


This summer, five Tufts University Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) scholars completed a research internship in Shanghai, China. Outside of their research labs, the scholars had the chance to explore the city and surrounding area each weekend. The scholars took a cruise on the Huangpu River, visited the Great Wall in Bejing, and participated in two painting classes and one traditional Chinese calligraphy course, among many other excursions.

Tufts LSAMP is a national program supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal of LSAMP is to strengthen the preparation, representation, and success of historically underrepresented students in the science and engineering fields, while also encouraging graduate studies.
