Students preparing to enter graduate study should consider the
availability of IGERT Traineeship Stipends that a number of universities
offer in specific fields of study. Over the last five years, the
National Science Foundation has granted to proposing university
faculties a total of 125 awards in the IGERT program (each of 5-years
duration). IGERT awards enable these universities to offer stipend
support and tuition allowances to graduate students to engage in
research in exciting interdisciplinary areas of science and engineering.
Student Traineeship Opportunities
Interested applicants should study the Web pages of the various
IGERT award sites for descriptions of their programs, for contact
information on the participating faculty, and, importantly, for
specific application procedures. Please note
that stipend support from an IGERT funded program is available
only to U. S. citizens or permanent residents, although universities
may offer non-U.S. citizens other means of support to participate
in the IGERT activities.
