Auburn University is pleased to announce that they are accepting applications for their

National Science Foundation Funded Research Traineeship (NRT) Program on Climate Resilience. 

Apply Now through Jan 9th, 2023

Candidates need to be accepted into Auburn University's graduate program to participate in the NRT. 

  • Desiring to possess the skills needed to succeed in an array of scientific careers?
  • Currently conducting research relating to climate change resilience?
  • Wanting to be recognized as a prestigious NSF Trainee, funded or non-funded?
  • Interested in conducting an internship with stakeholders that can use your help?
  • Interested in producing science that can be used by stakeholders to increase communities’ resilience to climate change?
  • Looking to engage with interdisciplinary research in a transformative graduate program?

Funded Trainees receive a $34,000 stipend per year for up to 2 years, qualify for the Auburn graduate out-of-state tuition and instate-tuition waivers and a set amount of your student fees are paid. Funded Trainees must either be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Unfunded Trainees may receive support from their department or other sources in lieu of NSF funding. Both groups of candidates have the same expectations and qualify to participate in all aspects of the program. 

This NRT program's goal is to train the next generation of scientists and leaders who can help build resilient communities that are prepared for, can effectively respond to, and quickly recover from damaging hazard events in the southeastern United States.  MS and PhD students will conduct research within an integrated and multidisciplinary framework with the aim to better understand, predict, and communicate the resilience of natural, social and built environmental systems. 

NRT Trainees will be required to complete coursework (up to 15hrs/PhD and 9hrs/Masters), attend workshops, participate in a 5 day immersion experience, complete program evaluations, bi-monthly project meetings, public outreach events, an internship, an annual conference. NRT Trainees are considered part of the Trainee program until they complete their degree whether they are funded or not from the program, as such their participation is expected throughout their degree enrollment.
