NEAGEP at UMaine
The Northeast Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (NEAGEP) is one of 26 National Science Foundation-funded Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program in the United States. The goal of the NEAGEP is to increase the number of domestic students receiving doctoral degrees and entering the professoriate in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We are particularly interested in recruiting, supporting and mentoring students of those population groups underrepresented in STEM fields (i.e., African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders).
Dr. Jonathan Paul is one of UMaine's successful AGEP students. Seen here with his advisor, Dr. Marie Hayes, Dr. Paul's research studied Auditory Event-Related Potential in Neonates and Young Infants Prenatally Exposed to Methadone.
Graduate fellowships for incoming doctoral students are available through UMaine's AGEP program. Inquiries regarding graduate fellowships may be directed to Scott G. Delcourt, Associate Dean of the Graduate School (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Summer research opportunities for undergraduate students are also available through UMaine's AGEP program. For information and an application to the summer research program, click here.
