Student Training Grants

Each ICE IGERT Student Training Grant provides up to $750 to support an interdisciplinary professional development activity in the field of cellular engineering. Students have used these awards to present their research at conferences, attend professional workshops, perform research "externships" in collaborator labs, and establish new research collaborations/projects. For detailed instructions and tips for getting your proposals funded, please read the application. As a reminder, ALL ICE IGERT members (including associates, domestic and international) are eligible to apply! Applications are accepted Feb 1st, June 1st and Oct 1st.
