Synopsis. The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development of bold, new, potentially transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training that ensure that graduate students develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program includes two tracks, the Traineeship Track and the Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) Track.
The 2016 NRT program has four priority research themes:
1. Data-enabled Science and Engineering
2. Understanding the Brain
