Since November 2001, NACME has been proud to partner with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in managing two innovative graduate scholarship programs focusing on increasing the number of underrepresented American minorities in mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering graduate programs. The Minority Ph.D. Program, established by the Sloan Foundation in 1995, offers eligible doctoral candidates the opportunity to pursue their Ph.D. degrees with financial, mentoring, and guidance support through recognized participating faculty and departments approved by the Sloan Foundation. The Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership(SIGP), initiated in 2003 through a partnership between the University of Arizona and the Sloan Foundation, was expanded in Fall 2005 to include the participation of select faculties and departments at The University of Montana, Missoula and Montana Tech of The University of Montana, Butte. In 2007 and 2008, Purdue University and the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and Anchorage were also added to the program.
The Sloan Guide to the Successful Recruitment of Minority Students into Science and Engineering PhD Programs is a comprehensive guide to assist Minority Ph.D. Program directors to help increase the number of Minority students enrolled in STEM(Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) PhD programs. This guide originally published in 2003, has been revised. This updated guide provides multiple resources to help program directors increase the number of minority students who pursue graduate and complete doctoral degrees in Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Engineering.
