Additional information regarding the limited submission opportunity is below.
Summary: The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training. The NRT program seeks proposals that ensure that graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs 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.
For FY2017, there are three priority areas: (1) Understanding the Brain, (2) Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems, INFEWS, and (3) any other interdisciplinary research theme of national priority.
Regardless of the research area, proposals must clearly describe an overarching interdisciplinary research focus and outline how the research theme will foster high return, interdisciplinary synergies. Proposals should also describe how the training and research elements will be integrated and justify the need for bold and innovative approaches to train graduate students in the thematic area.
