Description:
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation's Minority Ph.D. Program—managed by NACME—has two components. The Ph.D. component offers substantial scholarship support to underrepresented minority students who are beginning their doctoral work in engineering, natural science and mathematics. Since its establishment in 1995, the program has provided direct support to over 900 minority Ph.D. students in these fields. The smaller Feeder component offers underrepresented minority B.S. or M.S. students access to select faculty and departments that have demonstrated success in sending their students on to doctoral programs.

To become a Sloan Scholar, you must apply to and be accepted in a recognized program supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Scholars are selected based on their application, faculty recommendation, appropriate field of study, and financial need. Awards are made on a rolling basis.
