NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) Climate Resilience Program

Auburn University seeks M.S. and Ph.D. students to apply for the newly funded $3M NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) Climate Resilience Program. 

Domestic/permanent resident graduate students applying to Auburn can apply for up to two years of project support ($34,500 stipend/yr and tuition/fees paid). Additionally, international students and students already supported by the university can apply as non-funded Trainees still benefiting from the innovative interdisciplinary project. We seek excellent students that want to help make the SEUS more resilient to climate change related hazards through conducting interdisciplinary research working with and communicating to both stakeholders and the public.  Programs associated with the NRT include the Departments of Geosciences, Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences, Rural Sociology, the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, Biosystems Engineering, and the Earth System Science Ph.D. Program.

Please go to to learn more about the project and to apply.  Applications are due on March 15, 2020. Students must be accepted to an Auburn University M.S. or Ph.D. program and the graduate school to be qualified as an NRT Trainee.
