National Science Foundation
The Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program aims to develop the human capital and administrative and academic infrastructure that will enable the placement of underrepresented minorities (URMs; African-Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders) in faculty positions at American universities, colleges and community colleges. Please note that AGEP welcomes participation by URM students with disabilities. From its inception in 1998 as the Minority Graduate Education (MGE) program, it has grown from 8 participating universities to 108 institutions, including about 80% of the top producers of African American and Hispanic PhDs. AGEP institutions have been successful at increasing the numbers of URMs enrolled in and graduated from their STEM graduate programs. The educational research portfolio contributes to the body of literature of successful practices in student recruitment, retention, persistence, and attainment of STEM undergraduate and graduate degrees, especially for populations underrepresented in STEM disciplines: African-Americans, Alaskan Natives, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders. AGEP welcomes the participation of URM persons with disabilities.AGEP alliances further the graduate education of underrepresented STEM students through the doctorate level, preparing them for fulfilling opportunities and productive careers as STEM faculty and research professionals. AGEP also supports the transformation of institutional culture to attract and retain STEM doctoral students into the professorate.
