What we do
The Undergraduate and Graduate Programs (UGP) group pursues ideas aimed at improving science education in the U.S. We invest in institutions including colleges, universities, and other organizations, and award grants and fellowships to faculty and students. Our programs are centered on inclusion, with the understanding that faculty, staff, and administrators are responsible for creating equitable learning environments that support all students. Equity results in inclusion, and inclusion makes real the power of diversity.
We want all students — particularly those who have historically been excluded or underrepresented — to feel that they belong and can succeed in science. This is inclusive diversity.
Our primary programs are below.
