The Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate - Transformation (AGEP-T) Frontiers of Research and Academic Models of Excellence (FRAME) capitalizes on the rigor and research accomplishments at SBU and BNL. This in turn builds an equally productive, broader partnership aimed at helping Underrepresented Minority (URM) graduate students and postdocs who are U.S. citizens, develop the essential skills for success in intensive academic environments. The long term goal is to create a competitive and diverse pool of enthusiastic, ambitious and creative educators and researchers with the capacity to be leaders in academia and industry.
AGEP-T is a new National Science Foundation Program committed to increasing diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields by building strategic alliances of institutions and organizations to develop programs to increase the success of underrepresented minorities in STEM.
