Last update


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 the development of a diverse, globally-engaged, science and engineering workforce.

Because MU is limited in the number of full proposals, a copy of the preliminary proposal must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, by 5:00 Friday when the preliminary proposal is made.

Amount: Up to $3.0 M per award over 5 years, plus, for new awards, up to $200K additional in the first year for appropriate purposes, and up to $200K total per award for projects that include strongly integrated international research activities in years 2 - 5.

Agency deadline: Preliminary proposal (required) February 4, 2005
  Full proposal (invitation only): August 25, 2005
