REACT Program

Rapid Exposure to Advanced Computational Training (REACT) is a program designed to support PhD students hoping to gain external training in computational tools and techniques.

The program is a joint effort of the Environmental Change Initiative, the Eck Institute for Global Health, and the Genomics and Bioinformatics Core Facility. REACT will provide up to $1,500 to cover student tuition, registration, and room and board to attend nationally-recognized workshops that provide the training in the latest computational approaches. REACT is a short-term program; applications are considered on a rolling basis and funds will be dispersed until they run out.

REACT is intended to help PhD students learn to generate, manipulate, and analyze data directly related to their theses. We hope that participation in these workshops will help students build networks with experts in the field and fellow peer investigators. Expertise in computational skills is in high demand on the job market, and participation in these workshops may help PhD students compete for top jobs in academic, agency, and industrial settings.
