Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
For more than two decades, NACME has been proud to partner with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in its efforts to create diverse, equitable, and inclusive pathways to and through STEM graduate education. NACME serves as the primary administrator for two of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s signature initiatives.
University Centers for Exemplary Mentoring (UCEM)
The UCEM theory of change posits that through financial support, strong mentoring, supportive community, and institutional commitment, students in STEM can thrive and institutions can change graduate science and engineering education in ways that make it more welcoming, inclusive, and equitable for all. In addition to supporting UCEM institutions’ pursuit of systemic change in graduate education, the Foundation provides direct support to Sloan Scholars through scholarships and a strong alumni community. Opportunities provided by each UCEM can be found at the links below.
UCEM students or faculty who are submitting progress reports or other data can access the relevant online form through the My Portal page.
Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership (SIGP)
SIGP supports the creation and operation of regional centers that aim to foster welcoming and supportive environments for those committed to advancing Indigenous perspectives in science. The SIGP currently supports recruitment, retention, and educational efforts at nine campuses across the U.S. Opportunities provided by each SIGP campus can be found at the links below.
