UC Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate Phase II Project Description
The UC Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (UC AGEP) is uniquely poised to contribute to the national AGEP effort to increase the number of underrepresented minority (URM) students who enter the professoriate in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). In Phase II, UC AGEP will expand effective programs from its first phase of NSF funding and establish innovative new models for producing new PhDs who will be competitive in the academic job market.
The NNCS program has three goals: (1) To ensure the economic future of the Nation by increasing the number and diversity of US citizens pursuing advanced degrees in the STEM professions, (2) To strengthen Navy ties with the university research community to facilitate the transfer of promising technology to the Navy in a timely fashion, and (3) To ensure the future of the Navy’s research enterprise by providing new career entry pathways for talented STEM professionals
