Description: The Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate program supports advancing knowledge about innovative models of doctoral education, postdoctoral training, and faculty advancement. The program is focused on historically underrepresented minorities, specifically African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and Native Pacific Islanders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and STEM education research fields. As evidence-based prototypes are developed, implemented and studied, the outcomes of the work should contribute to a better understanding of the underlying issues, policies and practices that have an impact on the participation, transitions, and advancement of individuals who are historically underrepresented minorities in the STEM academy.
Support is available for new projects that are expected to be collaborative research proposals with a duration up to 60 months. Alliances develop, implement, and study innovative models to transform doctoral education, postdoctoral training, and faculty advancement of underrepresented minorities in STEM or STEM education research careers.
