REACT Program Announcement 2018/2019

Dear Faculty and Students,

We’re happy to announce that the REACT (Rapid Exposure to Advanced Computational Training) program will be funding students in 2018/2019. REACT supports PhD students and thesis Masters students hoping to gain external training in computational tools and statistics.

REACT is a joint effort of the Environmental Change Initiative (ECI), The Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH), the Genomics and Bioinformatics Core Facility (GBCF), and the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI). REACT will provide up to $1,300 to cover student tuition, registration, room and board to attend nationally- and internationally-recognized workshops that provide the training in the latest computational approaches. Such training is a top priority of many ND faculty. REACT is flexible program, intended to quickly and efficiently train a cohort of students who will act as leaders in computational approaches and serve as a support network for each other and their labs. Applications are considered on a rolling basis, and funds will be dispersed until they run out.

To date we have supported training for 14 students to attend 13 different courses in five different countries! Checkout the courses they attended and what they thought of their experiences here
