Current Utah Student Application Form
University of Utah
IGERT Training Program in Nanobiosensors, Nanomaterials, and Microfluidics
Funded by the National Science Foundation
ACADEMIC YEAR 2013 - 2014
Description: This form should be used by current, first-year University of Utah graduate students (who will be entering their second year of graduate school in the 2013-2014 academic year) who are interested in joining the IGERT training program. To support their multidisciplinary and integrative education, students will need to propose co-advisors from two different departments to supervise their dissertation research. Both advisors must be IGERT faculty members, and one must be from the student’s home department. For full program details and a faculty listing, see the attached program description.
Funding: IGERT Fellows in good standing are guaranteed funding for the course of their Ph.D. study. One year of study will be funded (with an opportunity for all or part of a second year, depending on available funding) by the IGERT grant (which includes a stipend of $30,000/yr and full tuition coverage), and subsequent years will be funded either by faculty research grants or other fellowships. IGERT Fellows are encouraged to seek external fellowship opportunities, such as the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships, the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowships (NDSEG), or the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Fellowships.
