NSF IGERT 2012 Video & Poster Competition

About the Resource Center ( staff at TERC in Cambridge, MA, with funding from NSF, served the IGERT community by providing a virtual resource center and a collegial network from 2008 - 2015. The Resource Center facilitated the sharing of resources, research, presentations, best practices, career opportunities, and conferences posted by trainees, faculty, alumni and partners. also provided national and international dissemination of varied interdisciplinary graduate education programs funded by NSF’s IGERT program. The three poster and video competitions held in 2011- 2013 were extraordinarily successful in sharing the innovative, cutting edge, research being conducted by trainees in each of these programs with a very broad public audience. Archives of each of these competitions are still available using the links provided in the left navigation bar here on
