 AGEP-Broadening Participation Research in STEM Education webinar

The Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) is announcing several proposal preparation webinars for those interested in responding to the most recent AGEP solicitation NSF 12-554.  The goal of the AGEP program is to increase the numbers of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders (URMs), including URMs with disabilities entering and completing graduate education and postdoctoral training to levels representative of the available pool of URMs. All AGEP proposals are due October 30, 2012.

AGEP-Transformation webinars:  These webinars will focus on the proposal preparation for the AGEP-Transformation track only.  AGEP-Transformation supports strategic alliances of institutions and organizations to develop, implement, and study innovative evidence-based models and standards for STEM graduate education, postdoctoral training, and academic STEM career preparation that eliminate or mitigate negative factors and promote positive practices for URMs.  The AGEP program office will cover the purpose and goal of the program, examples of activities supported by AGEP-Transformation, as well as expectations for project management, evaluation, alliances, social science research, and the project budget.  There will be plenty of time for Q and A from participants.

AGEP-Knowledge Adoption and Translation (KAT) webinars:  These webinars will focus on the proposal preparation for the AGEP-KAT track only.  AGEP-KAT supports projects to expand the adoption (or adaptation) of research findings and evidence-based strategies and practices related to the participation and success of URMs in STEM graduate education, postdoctoral training, and academic STEM careers.  The AGEP program office will cover the purpose and goal of the program, examples of activities supported by AGEP-KAT, as well as expectations for project management, evaluation, and the project budget.  There will be plenty of time for Q and A from participants.

AGEP-Broadening Participation Research in STEM Education (BPR) webinar:  This webinar will focus on the proposal preparation for the AGEP-BPR track only.  AGEP-BPR supports investigator initiated empirical research projects that seek to create and study new theory-driven models and innovations related to the participation and success of URMs in STEM graduate education, postdoctoral training, and academic STEM careers.   The AGEP program office will cover the purpose and goal of the program, and expectations for research design, management, evaluation, and the budget.  There will be plenty of time for Q and A from participants.
