AGEP - Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate

map of recently funded AGEPs AGEP alliances consist of institutions dedicated to supporting underrepresented minority students, women, and students with disabilities to complete advanced degrees in the STEM fields. Alliances provide a variety of support programs including research support, professional development and mentoring, as well as cultural and social activities.

The National Science Foundation's AGEP program is committed to the national goal of increasing the numbers of underrepresented minorities (URMs), including those with disabilities, entering and completing STEM graduate education and postdoctoral training to levels representative of the available pool. 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 supports 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.
