An information session on the National Science Foundation Integrative Graduate Education Research Traineeship Program, IGERT, is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, from 2:30 - 3:30 pm in 78-2150. The session will provide an overview of the funding opportunity and details of RIT’s internal submission process.
INTENT TO SUBMIT INSTRUCTIONS
The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program has been developed to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers with interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in chosen disciplines, and technical, professional, and personal skills. The program is intended to establish new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. It is also intended to facilitate diversity in student participation and preparation, and to contribute to a world-class, broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science and engineering workforce.
The purpose of the IGERT program is to support new models in graduate education in which students are engaged in an environment that supports innovation to learn through hands-on experience how their own research may contribute in new ways to benefit society and to learn the processes for the successful implementation of such contributions.
The full program solicitation is NSF 11-533. The solicitation may be revised for the 2013 cycle and is expected to be released in early summer.
U.S. academic institutions that grant the Ph.D. degree in the sciences and engineering may submit proposals. Projects may involve more than one institution, but a single institution must accept overall management responsibility. The lead institution must grant the Ph.D. degree in at least one of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields supported by the National Science Foundation and at least one Ph.D. granting unit should participate in the IGERT.
There is a limit of one (1) proposal that may be submitted by an institution either as a single institution or as a lead institution in a multi-institution proposal.
