IGERT Implementation and Early Outcomes

Jennifer Giancola, Anne Chase, Rebecca Koepnick


July 1, 2001
NSF contracted Abt Associates to assess the program‘s implementation and early outcomes through an analysis of data from NSF‘s web survey of all IGERT Principal Investigators (PIs) and students (all funded trainees and some non-funded student associates). PIs were asked questions about process (e.g., implementation challenges, recruitment of trainees) as well as progress towards IGERT goals for trainees (e.g., research skills, skills applicable to careers in industry, communication skills, international perspective). Trainees were asked about their IGERT experiences and how effective their education has been.
