The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Education and Human Resources provides support for the Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate Program (AGEP). AGEP is committed to the national goal of increasing the numbers of African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders who are underrepresented minority scholars, including those with disabilities entering and completing graduate education and postdoctoral training to levels representative of the available pool of these groups.

Increased participation of underrepresented minority scholars in advanced STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and training is critical for supporting the development of a diverse professional STEM workforce — especially a diverse STEM faculty who can serve as the intellectual, professional, personal and organizational role models who shape the expectations of future scientists and engineers.

To achieve this long-term commitment, 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 minority participation, preparation and success.

AGEP projects focus on underrepresented U.S. citizens in STEM graduate education and/or postdoctoral training — and on their preparation for academic STEM careers at all types of institutions of higher education. AGEP’s interests include any or all STEM fields supported by the NSF, including the social, behavioral and economic sciences, as well as multi-, cross- or inter-disciplinary STEM fields.

AGEP encourages community colleges, primarily undergraduate institutions, minority-serving institutions (such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian-Serving Institutions, and Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities), women’s colleges, and institutions primarily serving persons with disabilities to participate in all three types of AGEP projects.
