Research University Alliance is one of the Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP), a program funded by the National Science Foundation. In addition to U-M, this AGEP group includes the University of California-Berkeley, Stanford University, the University of California-Los Angeles, Harvard University, the University of Texas-Austin, the California Institute of Technology, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of Washington. This material is based upon the National Science Foundation Grant No. HRD-2014200. The university benefits from the further enrichment and diversification of the entire learning community, and U-M students and postdoctoral fellows benefit from the combined resources of the outstanding universities in the alliance, as well as a network of 80 AGEP alliances across the United States.
