The Research Exchange

The Research Exchange is available to current advanced graduate students and postdocs from underrepresented groups to spend up to 1 week in a research group at UC Berkeley, UC Los Angeles, Stanford, University of Michigan, Georgia Tech, University of Washington, Harvard, and UT Austin.

The Research Exchange visit is intended to allow participants to learn new techniques, develop research and professional collaborations, and network with faculty and fellow researchers that can help facilitate a future postdoctoral or faculty position. The AGEP program at Caltech will provide $1,000 (within California) and $1,500 (for inter-state) for eligible Caltech students and postdocs to spend up to a week at one of the Alliance campuses.
