New Interdisciplinary Program Student Recruitment
K-State is recruiting M.S. and Ph.D. students for a new interdisciplinary program funded by a NSF National Research Traineeship (NRT) award. The theme is “Rural Resource Resiliency.” The program is designed to prepare future leaders in industry, academia, government, and policy settings to help shape more sustainable communities. The program focuses especially on the challenges associated with food, energy, and water systems.
Students in agricultural economics, biological and agricultural engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, sociology and related STEM fields are encouraged to apply.
We can offer a generous stipend ($34,000 per year; 1-year at the Master’s level, 2-years at the PhD level), and full tuition (up to 18 credit hours per year). Following this funding, students in the program will be very competitive for GTA and GRA opportunities to complete their studies. NSF does require US Citizenship, green card, or permanent residency to participate with NRT-funding. Also, we can waive the application fee to the KSU Graduate School.
We have developed a flyer (see attached) and a website (see below) to assist with information transfer and recruiting. We would greatly appreciate your assistance in getting the word out.
*Please share this at your institution. We are recruiting students to start in August 2019.
