This work is supported, in part, by the Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program. AGEP is committed to the national goal of increasing the numbers of underrepresented minorities (URMs), entering and completing STEM graduate education and postdoctoral training to levels representative of the available pool. The AGEP program supports the development, implementation, study, and dissemination of innovative models and standards of graduate education and postdoctoral training that are designed to improve URM participation, preparation, and success.

Additionally, we have partnered with several institutions who will provide research and internship opportunities to the NRT trainees. More internship opportunities can be explored in collaboration with the students and faculty supervisors.
