TraineeshipsUS citizens and permanent residents are eligible for VIGRE Graduate Traineeships. Support includes full tuition and fees, a stipend to cover living expenses, and funds to attend summer research conferences. Graduate students are supported entirely by a fellowship during the first year and by a mix of teaching and research funding thereafter. All eligible applicants for admission will be automatically considered for VIGRE support, so there is no need to apply specially.
Summer Bootstrap CampIn the summer of 2006 we held our very first Summer Bootstrap Camp! Some materials from the camp can be viewed here.
A feature of the VIGRE graduate traineeship program is to provide travel funds for VIGRE graduate students to attend professional meetings that are relevant to their areas of research.Reports from past recipients: link]
