What kind of program is this?
Engineering graduate students with a social scientist as an advisor? Students spending one semester in extreme northern Michigan and the next just a stone’s throw from the Mississippi delta?
Cajun pasties, anyone?
This cross-country, cross-cultural experience all stems from a new $3.6 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund the Sustainable Futures IGERT. Michigan Tech and Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, will operate the program beginning this fall.
