Those considering Auburn graduate school and interested in conducting research to help southeast communities be more resilient to weather hazards are encouraged to apply to Alabama's first National Science Foundation, or NSF, Research Traineeship here at Auburn University.

This interdisciplinary program is training both masters and doctoral students to build resilient communities that can effectively prepare and respond to damaging hazard events in the southeast United States. This NSF Research Traineeship, or NRT, program is in compliment to the participant's home department's degree program.

Funded trainees receive $34K in stipends/year, graduate out-of state and in-state tuition waived and a portion of their student fees waived. Funded trainee applications are due by Jan. 10 and unfunded by April to join next fall's cohort.
