GEM3 Vertically Integrated Project (VIP) Funding

Summary:

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.
