NSF – National Research Traineeship Program

The Office of Research Advancement and Partnerships is now accepting limited submission pre-proposals for the National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) program.
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 2019 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 NRT Program Solicitation.
For the internal competition submission, you will need to complete the NRT Application.
Please submit all documents to by Wednesday, October 17th. Full proposals will be due at NSF on February 6, 2019.

Palouse Conservation District Volunteer and Internship Opportunities

Palouse Conservation District is seeking interns looking for valuable learning opportunities that help develop life long skills, as well as gaining a deeper understanding of concepts learned in classes through hands-on applications, as well as related work experience. Successful interns will have the desire to gain experience in conservation practice implementation and maintenance, outreach, and community engagement. Internships are offered year-round with a maximum of 240 hours available. Interns can also achieve academic credit if arranged through an academic adviser.
We will also be hosting weekly volunteers events through the WSU Center for Civic Engagement. For the Fall, they will be occurring on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, but we will start to have volunteer opportunities on the weekends as well. Any interested students can sign up for these volunteer events through CougSync and searching under the Palouse Conservation District’s events.
