The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) Program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. This solicitation describes a pilot for a potential new track for the existingNRT Programthat will support research and education projects that will result in a new master’s degree, certificate, or a track within an existing master’s or Ph.D. program with high industry relevance in at least one focus area identified in this pilot. This will be accomplished through an effective partnership among: (a) a non-R1 Institution of Higher Education (IHE) (lead institution), (b) an non-lead IHE (an R1 or non-R1) that has either an ongoing or completed NRT program in at least one of the focus areas defined for this pilot (see below), and (c) two to three industry partners in the same focus area(s). The overall purpose is to train the STEM workforce in focus areas specified in this solicitation by stimulating collaborations among non-R1 institutions, institutions with existing or completed NRT projects, and industry partners.

The NRT project at the participating non-lead IHE partner should have successfully completed at least three years of work, as demonstrated by three approved annual reports at the time of submission. The lead institution should not have an existing master’s degree in the chosen focus area(s). Investigators from a lead institution that has an existing graduate certificate, a track within an existing master’s program that is broader than or distinct from the chosen focus area(s), or a Ph.D. program in one or more of the chosen focus areas are encouraged to contact the Program Officers to inquire about eligibility.

Focus Areas:

  • Artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomy, and related advances.
  • High performance computing, semiconductors, and advanced computer hardware and software.
  • Quantum information science and engineering.
  • Robotics, automation, and advanced manufacturing.
  • Natural and anthropogenic disaster prevention or mitigation.
  • Advanced communications technology and immersive technology.
  • Biotechnology, medical technology, genomics, and synthetic biology.
  • Data storage, data management, distributed ledger technologies, and cybersecurity, including biometrics.
  • Advanced energy and industrial efficiency technologies, such as batteries and advanced nuclear technologies, including but not limited to, for the purposes of electric generation (consistent with section 15 of the National Science Foundation Act of 1950 (42 U.S.C. 1874)).
  • Advanced materials science, including composites 2D materials, other next-generation materials, and related manufacturing technologies.

Proposals submitted in response to this solicitation must represent a partnership among: (a) a non-R1 Institution of Higher Education (IHE) (lead institution), (b) a non-lead IHE (an R1 or non-R1) that has either an ongoing or completed NRT program in at least one of the focus areas defined for this pilot (see below), and (c) two to three industry partners in the same focus area(s).
