Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship Program (IGERT)
This five-year, $3.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation funds a multidisciplinary graduate program focused on resilience and adaptive governance in stressed watersheds. This collaborative program integrates scientific, social, economic and legal aspects of managing complex water issues. The Public Policy Center works on applicable policy and social science issues.
The program will educate doctoral students from many disciplines to become the next generation of natural resource scientists, managers and policymakers. This grant furthers UNL’s strategic goals for interdisciplinary research and education, and UNL’s commitment to be a leader in water research. More than 20 University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty members are participating in the IGERT program, and more than 20 graduate students will be supported by IGERT funds.
