The objective of this IGERT program is to provide an integrated experience that will allow for development of leaders who not only can build the technical foundation necessary to improve the sustainability of biorefining, but also address the broader human dimension of this emerging field.
IGERT trainees gain a unique educational experience while attending one of the nation's top-rated land-grant institutions and taking part in the wide spectrum of cultural activities that Kansas State University has to offer.
