The Stony Brook-Brookhaven AGEP Frontiers of Research and Academic Models of Excellence (FRAME) Alliance for TransformationAbout AGEP-T Website cropped

The NSF Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program seeks to advance knowledge about models to improve pathways to the professoriate and success for historically underrepresented minority doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty, particularly African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders, in specific STEM disciplines and/or STEM education research fields. The AGEP program goal is to increase the number of historically underrepresented minority faculty, in specific STEM disciplines and STEM education research fields, by advancing knowledge about pathways to career success. 

FRAME:  Frontiers of Research and Academic Models of Excellence

FRAME Scholars: All underrepresented minority doctoral students in STEM and postdoctoral associates with research interests in STEM that have registered with the Center for Inclusive Education (CIE). FRAME Scholars are invited to participate in all programming of the AGEP-T Program and the CIE. 

FRAME Fellows: Scholars have the opportunity to apply to become FRAME Fellows and receive funding for various research endeavors, conference travel and career/professional development. Fellows represent the highest levels of accomplishment and are dedicated to pursuing academic careers in which they will help mentor and encourage future scholars. FRAME Fellows join existing research labs, groups or projects at Stony Brook and/or Brookhaven National Laboratory.
