IGERT Program Announcements and Information


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 who will pursue careers in research and
education, with the interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in
chosen disciplines, and technical, professional, and personal skills to
become, in their own careers, leaders and creative agents for change.
The program is intended to catalyze a cultural change in graduate
education, for students, faculty, and institutions, by establishing
innovative 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.
