Student Research Proposals Sought
The WRRC is calling for research proposals from students for its 104b grants program. The program, authorized under the Water Resources Research Act, Section 104(b) and funded through the U.S. Geological Survey, promotes the entry of new research scientists, engineers and technicians in the water resources field and education of students through significant involvement in water research. Students and their faculty sponsors are encouraged to submit proposals featuring student research that explores new ideas to address water problems in Arizona and expands understanding of water and related phenomena.
The WRRC expects to award two to four grants of up to $10,000. 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). The student or students should be listed as Co-PI(s). The deadline for submitting proposals is 5:00 pm, Wednesday, November 7, 2018.
