Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT)

The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program seeks to train scientists and engineers to address the global questions of the future. Combining interdisciplinary science with practical experience through the use of innovative curricula and internships, and by focusing on problem-centered training, these programs give their graduates the edge needed to become leaders in their chosen fields and agents for change in their careers. The traineeship particularly seeks to increase the participation of underrepresented groups, including women and minorities, in doctorate programs in the engineering, science and mathematics fields. Students who win an IGERT Fellowship receive stipend and tuition support, as well as funds for research materials. The stipend per 12 month period is $30,000. Support varies by program, so please check the program website for specific details on each program. Applicants must demonstrate strong interest and motivation in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Applicants must also have completed a bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. For more information, please see the program traineeship website.
