"I think that given the federal structure of the country that when we are talking about addressing issues of health, natural resources development and management, economic development, etc.--we have to distribute capacity. The only way to really do that is to find the places where the capacity is lesser and basically build that up. We're not going to make it any other way."

--Shirley Malcom, Head of Education and Human Resources Program, AAAS

“The brilliant thing about it, is that the NSF grant provides salary and education support, so it will allow me to focus entirely on my research. It frees me up to excel in science.”

--Kristen Emmett, Doctoral Student, Montana State University 

"This alone justifies the entire program: IDeA allows NIH to select from the talent pool of the entire nation."

--Dr. Jon Lorsch, Director, NIGMS

"The cutting edge research accomplishments that will emerge from these jurisdiction-wide projects will stimulate collaborations, innovations, and local economies."

--Dr. Denise Barnes, Section Head, NSF EPSCoR
