As you may know, we are currently recruiting trainees for the 2014-2016 IGERT in Aging Sciences program. This IGERT program (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) is funded by the National Science Foundation and will be attractive to many students applying to participating departments at OSU, including Human Development & Family Sciences, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, Nutrition & Exercise Sciences, Chemistry, Biochemistry & Biophysics, Design & Human Environment, Public Health, Zoology and Construction & Civil Engineering. Oregon State’s IGERT in Aging Sciences will provide trainees a stipend of $30,000 per year for two years of their doctoral program, along with support for tuition remission and research costs. Doctoral departments will determine funding levels for remaining years in the program.
Students are encouraged to apply to participating graduate departments and indicate their interest in the IGERT program on their applications. We would also appreciate it if graduate advisors would screen for potential IGERT applicants. Six new students will be accepted as 2014-2016 IGERT trainees.
