PROMISE: Maryland's AGEP

PROMISE: Maryland’s Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professionate (AGEP) is a National Science Foundation alliance of the 12 institutions within the University System of Maryland, dedicated to the increasing the number and diversity of Ph.D. graduates in the sciences and engineering who go on to academic careers. AGEP is a program of the National Science Foundation, and PROMISE is one of several AGEPs with the United States. Broadly, students can participate in PROMISE regardless of their status (full-time, part-time), ethnicity, discipline, or source of funding. Narrowly, students who are underrepresented will be strongly supported as they utilize the services and resources of PROMISE; these students can be encouraged to consider PROMISE to be one of their major mechanisms of support.

PROMISE has activities for undergraduate students, with a focus on cultivating graduate students, supporting postdoctoral fellows, and faciltating future faculty diversity in STEM.
