We are now recruiting MS and PhD students into our Building Resources for InterDisciplinary training in Genomic and Ecosystem Sciences (BRIDGES) NSF Research Traineeship for Fall 2022. The BRIDGES NRT program offers:
An exciting training and professional development opportunity within a community of scholars who foster inclusive excellence through diversity of cultures, disciplines, and demographies;
Competitive student fellowships ($34,000 stipend per year for up to two years, plus tuition waiver) for U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents;
For international students, other sources of support for graduate studies (such as research assistantships, teaching assistantships, other kinds of fellowships, etc.) may be available from other sources, and such students are welcome to apply to become BRIDGES trainees;
Choice of biologically-oriented transdisciplinary graduate training programs, from ecology and evolution, to plant, insect and environmental sciences to big data science and engineering to atmospheric sciences.
We welcome and encourage applications by students representing all dimensions of diversity. All eligible matriculating UArizona students with an interest in Ecosystem Genomics can apply to the BRIDGES training program as participants, independent of nationality. NSF guidelines specify that eligibility for BRIDGES fellowships is limited to U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents.
Applications received by December 3, 2021 will be included in our first review, but those submitted after the date will be considered if space and funding is available.
