This mode of multidisciplinary interaction is central to IGERT program. Our IGERT team has created a highly integrated network of researchers focusing on the complex issues of sustainable bioenergy production.
     Every student in the program will receive a $30,000 annual stipend plus a $10,500 annual cost-of-education allowance which covers tuition, fees, and health insurance, as well as international travel and travel to professional conferences.
