GEM3 Vertically Integrated Project (VIP) Funding
Idaho NSF EPSCoR GEM3 funding is available to facilitate the development of VIP (Vertically Integrated Project) courses related to the GEM3 research areas. VIP is a program to increase student access to hands-on learning with faculty mentors and diverse teams. The VIP approach is at the center of the Idaho NSF EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Track-1 GEM3 Education, Workforce Development, and Diversity plans.
This VIP Funding program is part of Idaho’s multi-year (2018-2023) statewide NSF Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Track-1 Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) award, “Genes by Environment: Modeling, Mechanisms, and Mapping (GEM3).” The project is highly aligned with Idaho’s Higher Education Research Strategic Plan. GEM3 includes a statewide collaborative academic research program committed to Idaho EPSCoR’s “ONEIdaho” philosophy. Faculty and students at Idaho’s universities and colleges work collaboratively across institutions on basic research; integration of science disciplines; integration of research, education, and workforce development; and fostering integration of science and stakeholders.
