Title: IGERT PhD Fellowship for Computer Science and Engineering StudentsPosted: March 16, 2014
Company/Institution: Arizona State University
Location: Tempe ASU Campus
Department: Computer Science and Engineering


IGERT, the National Science Foundation's flagship interdisciplinary training program offers U.S. scientists and engineers the opportunity to pursue a PhD on the foundations of their disciplinary knowledge with interdisciplinary training. On acceptance, four years of funding is available to IGERT PhD fellows that includes tuition fees, health coverage and significant stipends. APAcT is a partnership between Arizona State University and California State University, Long Beach through cross-disciplinary collaboration by offering the ideal infrastructure to pioneer change by advancing disability research and graduate-level education.

Curriculum: Fellows learn through an integrated education-research-practice model consisting of six discrete components:
1. Education,
2. Research training,
3. Applied training,
4. Service learning,
5. Entrepreneurship, commercialization and global leadership,
6. Teamwork and camaraderie

Thematic basis is person-centeredness through accessible technologies. A person-centered approach includes the individual at the core of the decision making team. Until now person-centeredness has been primarily focused on delivering services, while technologies and technology-related policies have largely approached a one-size-fits-all perspective. Our goal is to provide ground-up solutions for person-centeredness across all types of technology, approaches, and services.
