Last update


The NSF Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program is intended to increase significantly the number of domestic students receiving doctoral degrees in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), with special emphasis on those population groups underrepresented in these fields (i.e., African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, or other Pacific Islanders). In addition, AGEP is particularly interested in increasing the number of minorities who will enter the professoriate in these disciplines. Specific objectives of the AGEP program are to develop and implement innovative models for recruiting, mentoring, and retaining minority students in STEM doctoral programs, and to develop effective strategies for identifying and supporting underrepresented minorities who want to pursue academic careers.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, June 22, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to a three pages and should include the following: 1) listing of anticipated partner institution(s); 2) plans for significant increases in the recruitment, retention, degree conferral, and STEM career (especially academic) entry of underrepresented minority students; and 3) plans for project evaluation.


Awards will range from up to $2.5 million to $5 million over 5 years
