Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Minority PhD Program

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation's Minority Ph.D. Program - managed by NACME - offers substantial scholarship support to underrepresented minority students who are beginning their doctoral work in engineering, natural science and mathematics. Since its establishment in 1995, the program has supported more than 200 students.

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation's Minority Ph.D. Program—managed by NACME—has two components. The Ph.D. component offers substantial scholarship support to underrepresented minority students who are beginning their doctoral work in engineering, natural science and mathematics. Since its establishment in 1995, the program has provided direct support to almost 600 minority Ph.D. students in these fields. The smaller Feeder component offers underrepresented minority B.S. or M.S. students access to select faculty and departments that have demonstrated success in sending their students on to doctoral programs. This section offers a complete list of the schools currently offering Sloan-sponsored studies in any one of several recognized disciplines, along with information about how to apply for Sloan support and become a Sloan scholar.

They also provide information to faculty on their Ph.D. component and our Feeder component.

Feel free to contact them for additional questions that may not be answered here.
