    The National Action Council for Miniorities in Engineering (NACME) has been the Foundation's longtime partner in its grantmaking in the Education for Underrepresented Groups program, administering both the Minority Ph.D. program and the Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership. NACME receives applications, selects students for scholarships, administers awards, and supports recruitment efforts by participating faculty. This grant funds new obligations in these programs incurred from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. Funds will be used to provide scholarships to newly accepted minority Ph.D. students in both programs, support efforts to recruit new students, and support established "feeder" programs at North Carolina A&T and the University of Puerto Rico that have proven successful in graduating minority students who go on to graduate study in science and engineering.

    The University of Arizona was the first campus to participate in the Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership and it remains the flagship of the program. Funds from this grant will support the University's efforts to recruit qualified indigenous students to its program, and to provide the resources and institutional support necessary to meet the needs of students from indigenous or tribal backgrounds. Providing such support is a crucial component of enabling indigenous students to successfully complete graduate work, and the University of Arizona anticipates that through its efforts, degree completion among supported students will exceed 90%, an estimate consistent with its record thus far
