The National Science Foundation’s Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program is offering a limited submission opportunity for $13.5 million—up to $3.3 million per award over five years. This includes the $200,000 Competitive Incentive Fund per award for trainees for research and innovation activities. Additional funds up to $200,000 per award may be available to support integrated international research activities.

The IGERT funding will help establish new models in graduate education in which students are engaged in an environment that supports innovation and helps students learn through hands-on experience how their own research may benefit society. Additionally, the model will help students learn the processes for the successfully implementing such contributions.

Up to 18 new and renewal awards will be awarded, but only one application is allowed per organization. The internal deadline to apply is Feb. 27.
