This year, the WRRC is trying something new by focusing its 104b grants program on graduate student research projects. The program, authorized under the Water Resources Research Act, Section 104(b) and funded through the USGS, provides small grants for research that explores new ideas to address water problems in Arizona. The program emphasizes the entry of new research scientists, engineers, and technicians in the water resources field as well as the education of students through significant involvement in water research; consequently, the WRRC is calling on graduate students and their faculty sponsors to submit proposals.
The WRRC expects to award two to four grants of up to $10,000. Funds may be applied to student support or used for other purposes such as field or lab work on graduate student projects. Student project proposals must show a faculty member at one of Arizona’s three state universities (UA, ASU, or NAU) as the Principal Investigator (PI). Students should be listed as co-PIs.
