New Opportunity for Graduate Students, beginning Fall 2020

A new National Science Foundation Graduate Research Traineeship (NRT) program is available at UK, aimed at fully integrating research and professional skill development within an inclusive, multidisciplinary and supportive academy. Scholarships will be available to selected students.  

Food, energy and water systems face numerous challenges in Kentucky, across the nation and throughout the globe. New approaches are needed to ensure adequate food supplies for increasing populations, to foster the development of sustainable and carbon-neutral sources of energy and to improve the management of water resources. This program will combine graduate student training with cutting-edge research in mine land remediation, water treatment, crop production and power generation and will help address the need for innovators in food, energy and water systems.
