IGERT trainees gain a unique educational experience while attending one of the nation's top-rated public institutions and the wide spectrum of cultural activities that the University of Texas at Austin has to offer. Furthermore, IGERT trainees experience living in Austin, one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the United States, and (bar none) the music capital of the world.
