GRADUATE FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
With financial support from the Virginia Tech Graduate School and the Fralin Life Sciences Institute, the Global Change Center aims to support graduate students who engage in interdisciplinary research and problem-solving to address today’s pressing societal and environmental challenges. The Global Change Center, in coordination with the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, also helps to administer funds for a NIH T32 Predoctoral Training Grant.
