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.)
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 email@example.com by November 14, 2017. Full proposals will be due at NSF on February 6, 2018.

The purpose of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is to help ensure the vitality and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. NSF especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, persons with disabilities, veterans, and undergraduate seniors to apply.
