Since its beginning in 1998, NSF's IGERT program has had a significant impact on the trainees, on the awardee institutions, and upon the fields of scientific inquiry represented. The IGERT program has made 278 awards and has provided funding for approximately 6,500 graduate students. Studies have found that the IGERT program has had a measurable impact in altering the graduate education experiences of participating students, supporting faculty engagement in interdisciplinary teaching and research, and advancing interdisciplinary graduate education within host institutions.
