I am not a U. S. citizen or permanent resident. Can I still be considered for this program?
Yes, you can apply as an IGERT affiliate. However, only U. S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible for funding under this program.

If I am an IGERT Trainee, in which department will I get my degree?
IGERT Trainees will still have an associated home department or program, of which their principal research advisor is a member. This is generally the degree-granting department or program. However, Ph. D. requirements, which are determined by the student’s advising committee, may be adjusted to better reflect the multidisciplinary aspect of the program.

How many Traineeships are awarded per year?
Approximately six new Trainees will be admitted each year.
