NSF Research Traineeship Program Limited Submission

The NRT is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training.

Proposals should 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. Priority research areas for the 2018 competition are Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) and Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems (INFEWS). (Note that the NRT program no longer has two tracks; the Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) track has been separated as its own program.)

The full NRT program solicitation can be viewed at .

PLEASE NOTE: Any participation in an NRT proposal falls under the organizational limit, whether “serving as a lead organization, non-lead organization, or subawardee on any proposal” (NSF 18-507, p 3). Therefore, anyone who intends to collaborate or subcontract on an NRT at another institution must submit a WSU preproposal in order to be considered for eligibility.

For the internal competition submission, you will need to complete the NSF – NRT Application. Please submit all documents to by November 14, 2017. Full proposals will be due at NSF on February 6, 2018.
