IGERT trainees will receive training in the aspects of mentoring undergraduate students.  Subsequently, they will serve as the primary advisors for undergraduate student researchers.  In this way, the IGERT trainee can gain valuable experience as a research director in a non-threatening environment. 

We are partnering with the following Kansas State University programs to identify and support undergraduate researchers: 

McNair Scholars Program
Women in Engineering Program
Research Experience for Undergraduates
Developing Scholars Program
Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (SUROP)


If you are an undergraduate looking for a research experience, please contact one of these programs, or contact the IGERT  program director for additional information, email:
