NSF-IGERT Award Given to ASU-CSULB Team

In partnership with a lead team from Arizona State University, Dean Forouzan Golshani and 10 collaborators from CSULB received the highly competitive IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) award from the National Science Foundation. Funded by a grant of $3 million, the ASU-CSULB-IGERT initiative aims to create an interdisciplinary doctoral program in the area of Person-Centered Technologies and Practices for Individuals with Disabilities.

Doctoral students with and without disabilities will be considered for this program, and those who are accepted will have the opportunity to become leaders in designing, developing and implementing person-centered technologies and practices to ensure that people with disabilities are able to fully participate in all aspects of life. Up to 30 IGERT fellows will work on cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research projects spanning departmental and institutional boundaries.
