The Drexel/UPenn IGERT program is a joint effort between the two universities, funded by NSF, to provide the best and brightest students with an opportunity to embark on research in the multidisciplinary field of nanotechnology. Visit www.igert.org to find out more about the IGERT program nationwide.
This program allows Ph.D. students to learn about nanotechnology beyond the scope of their particular research project, through activities such as seminars, industry and government speakers. The program is directed by Dr. Yury Gogotsi at Drexel and Dr. Dawn Bonnell at Penn. Under the leadership of Drs. Bonnell and Gogotsi, these two pioneering institutions in nanoscale innovation are coming together to educate the leading nanoscience researchers of the future.
Students who have an interest in nanoscale research and plan to enter a Ph.D. program in science or engineering should consider applying to the Drexel-Penn IGERT program. See the Prospective Fellows link at left for application information. IGERT fellows receive a stipend of $30,000 per year plus full tuition.
