NSF Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate AGEP
NSF 21-576
NSF 21-576

Three new tracks are offered: The AGEP Catalyst Alliance (ACA) track, the AGEP Faculty Career Pathways Alliance Model (FC-PAM) track, and the AGEP Institutional Transformation Alliance (ITA) track. The FC-PAM track will only be funded in FY2022-FY2023 and it will be discontinued thereafter.

Furthering the AGEP goal requires advancing knowledge about new academic STEM career pathway models, and about evidence-based systemic or institutional change initiatives to promote equity and the professional advancement of the AGEP populations who are pursuing, entering and continuing in non-tenure and tenure-track STEM faculty positions. NSF is particularly interested in activities that will advance science, technology, engineering and mathematics and STEM education research disciplines contributing to the fields of artificial intelligence and quantum information systems, as well as fields that focus on preparing America’s skilled technical workforce and advancing discoveries that empower U.S. businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed globally.

Note to students and postdoctoral scholars seeking support: The AGEP program does not make awards to individual students or postdoctoral scholars to undertake their education or research activities.  Undergraduates and graduate students seeking support for graduate education should review the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship program (GRFP): http://nsfgrfp.org/.  Postdoctoral scholars seeking support should consider searching the NSF website for information about possible funding opportunities: https://www.nsf.gov/.
