The AGEP program may be of interest to the colleges and universities you work with. Hyperlinks to the complete solicitation are below.
NSF’s Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) is committed to the national goal of increasing the numbers of underrepresented minorities (URMs), including those with disabilities, entering and completing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduate education and postdoctoral training to levels representative of the available pool. URMs include African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders. Increased URM participation in advanced STEM education and training is critical for supporting the development of a diverse professional STEM workforce especially a diverse STEM faculty who serve as the intellectual, professional, personal, and organizational role models that shape the expectations of future scientists and engineers. To achieve this long term goal, the AGEP program will support the development, implementation, study, and dissemination of innovative models and standards of graduate education and postdoctoral training that are designed to improve URM participation, preparation, and success.
The AGEP program will support three types of projects described in this solicitation:
1) AGEP-Transformation (AGEP-T)
2) AGEP-Knowledge Adoption and Translation (AGEP-KAT)
3) AGEP-Broadening Participation Research in STEM Education (AGEP-BPR).
