CCMR gets $2.9M for training grad students in nanoscale science
Date:9/22/2007

ows also will participate in interdisciplinary research projects under the mentorship of two faculty members from different fields. These projects will supplement the students' grounding in their core subject areas.

The first six IGERT fellows are at Cornell now, with another six expected to come in every year until the five-year grant runs out, for a total of 30 fellows. Next semester, the students will start their yearlong modules. Not only will they hear from a range of researchers on techniques and limitations of nanoscale science, but they also will take short courses on such skills as public speaking, writing science papers and ethical issues.

These skills, Hines said, are crucial parts of being a scientist but are often overlooked at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Finally, a portion of the IGERT grant will go toward the universitywide goal of increasing diversity on campus, but particularly in science and engineering. With the help of the IGERT funding, a staff recruiter will be hired to develop relationships with such colleges as the University of Puerto Rico and Tuskegee University.
