The National Science Foundation’s National Research Traineeship at Nebraska is designed to fund up to 23 students within five years, adding 5 students each fall. The Nebraska NRT has funded all the students pictured on the Current Students webpage. Our students come from different backgrounds but share an interest in ensuring the sustainability and resilience of earth’s agro-ecosystems. They bring together their unique life experiences, outlooks and aspirations to break current barriers to solving overriding ecological issues and improving the world now and for future generations. Below, some of our students are spotlighted. Click on their names to read their stories and see how your story can fit at the University of Nebraska. At UNL, your story matters!
