Alfred P. Sloan Foundation's Minority Ph.D. Program
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and The National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering have selected faculty members and departments participating in the Alfred P. Sloan Minority Ph.D. Program because they have demonstrated a commitment to educating African American, American Indian and Latino leaders. Each has a track record of preparing women and men from historically underrepresented groups for leadership in engineering and technology, math- and science-based disciplines.
Students should survey the departments supported by Sloan in your discipline. First, apply for admission to one of those departments. If accepted, you become a candidate for a Sloan Scholarship. Sloan and the department work together to guarantee you financial support as long as you are making satisfactory progress toward your degree. Beyond the monetary assistance, you receive the mentoring and guidance that often spells the difference between beginning and completing a degree.
