University of Notre Dame doctoral and thesis master’s students can now apply for the Rapid Exposure to Advanced Computational Training (REACT) program. Funded by 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), the REACT program was created to support eligible students to receive the latest training in computational tools and techniques in their field.

“From earth sciences to biology, computational skills, such as analyzing large data sets and building statistical models, are essential for success in today’s research landscape,” said Elizabeth Archie, associate professor of biological sciences. “Therefore, multiple groups have come together to create an opportunity for doctoral and thesis master’s students to get the support they need to have access to critical training in various computational approaches.”

The REACT program will provide up to $1,300 to cover student tuition, registration, and board that is necessary for a student to attend a nationally-recognized workshop that provides the latest training in computational approaches. In order to apply, an eligible student’s advisor must be a member in good standing with ECI, EIGH, GBCF, or the HCRI. Additionally, students that attend a workshop may be asked to share their experience with others.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis. To learn more about eligibility, review application instructions, or submit an application, please visit
