NSF Virtual Session with Vinod Lohani

Division of Graduate Education Program Director

Please join the Division of Research and Economic Development for a virtual session on Funding Opportunities at the National Science Foundation for Transformative STEM Graduate Education. Dr. Vinod Lohani, Program Director for the Division of Graduate Education at NSF, will discuss two STEM graduate education programs, namely, NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program and the Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) program. The goal of the NRT program is to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training. The key elements of the NRT program include convergent research and training, inclusive workforce development, and institutional transformation. The IGE program is dedicated to: (i) piloting, testing, and validating innovative approaches to graduate education, and (ii) generating the knowledge required for the customization and implementation of the most successful, transformative approaches. Dr. Lohani will also briefly discuss the programs in the Division of Graduate Education that support the NSF CAREER program.

When: August 17th at 12 pm. (Virtual Event – zoom link and calendar invite will be provided after registration).
