NRT Program Released - Updates

The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program has released a new solicitation (NSF 15-542). 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.

Upcoming Program Informational Sessions

The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) Program Officers will host webinars to answer questions about the structure and goals of the new NRT program solicitation.

Q&A webinars times will be posted shortly.  Updated FAQs will also be available soon.
