NRT Program Released - Updates
The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program has released its first solicitation for proposals to address the need for new approaches to STEM graduate education and training. NRT invites proposals for either an interdisciplinary Data-Enabled Science and Engineering priority research theme or another crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme. Proposals are encouraged to develop, implement, and scale-up innovative and effective STEM graduate training models and practices, while fostering fundamental research advances in support of national priorities.
The NRT program solicitation can be found here. The NRT program solicitation was recently changed to remove the requirement that institutions provide health insurance to trainees on stipend (Sections V.A.7a and V.A.9) and to add "Results from Prior NSF Support" to the "Project Description" (Section V.A.4j). The solicitation number is the same (14-548) and the solicitation with revisions is currently available at the link above.
For general inquiries regarding the NRT program, please contact NRT@nsf.gov or 703-292-8696.
