Annotation:Since November 2001, NACME has been proud to partner with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in managing two innovative graduate scholarship programs focusing on increasing the number of underrepresented American minorities in mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering graduate programs. The Minority Ph.D. Program, established by the Sloan Foundation in 1995, offers eligible doctoral candidates the opportunity to pursue their Ph.D. degrees with financial, mentoring, and guidance support through recognized participating faculty and departments approved by the Sloan Foundation. The American Indian Graduate Program (AIGP), initiated in 2003 through a partnership between the University of Arizona and the Sloan Foundation, was expanded in Fall 2005 to include the participation of select faculties and departments at The University of Montana, Missoula and Montana Tech of The University of Montana, Butte.
