The National Science Foundation (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 that address both workforce development (emphasizing broad participation) and institutional capacity building needs in graduate education. The program has two tracks (the Traineeship Track and the Innovations in Graduate Education Track) and 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. For both tracks, strategic collaborations with the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government agencies, national laboratories, field stations, teaching and learning centers, informal science centers, and academic partners are encouraged. Please see the NSF NRT program page for information on past awards, the current solicitation, FAQs, and more.
The Office of Research and Engagement (ORE) will present an information session that will provide an overview of the NRT program, the internal limited submission process, and criteria that will be used to identify proposals for submission to NSF in 2018.
ORE will conduct the annual internal limited submission competition for the NRT program in the coming months. Any researcher considering a submission to the internal competition should attend this information session or send a representative. Registering will ensure that you receive updates and relevant materials, even if you are unable to attend the information session.
