WRRC Awards 2010 Montgomery & Associates Summer Writing Internship

May 5, 2010

University of Arizona student Tim Glass has been awarded the 3rd Annual Montgomery & Associates Summer Writing Internship at the WRRC.  A junior majoring in journalism, Mr. Glass is a non-traditional student who returned to school after serving in the military and working in private industry. His special interest is photojournalism, and he has gained experience in the field by working for the UA Daily Wildcat, the student newspaper. His WRRC internship assignment will be to work on the Arroyo, a WRRC annual newsletter that focuses on a critical Arizona water issue. The 2011 Arroyo will be devoted to desalination and its role in Arizona's water supply.

The Summer Writing Internship at the WRRC was inaugurated in 2008 with support from Montgomery & Associates, an Arizona-based consulting firm specializing in hydrology and water resource issues. The internship provides an opportunity for a student to gain research and writing experience by addressing issues relating to water and environmental science in a style to engage the general public. The intern will be part of the WRRC team conducting research and interviews and working on Arroyo drafts. The finished product is published in the first quarter of the following year and is mailed to subscribers and posted in PDF on the WRRC's web site. The 2010 Arroyo, "The Water-Energy Nexus: In a world of limited resources, water and energy are inextricably linked," released in March, is available at https://wrrc.arizona.edu/publications/arroyo-newsletter/arroyo-2010-water-energy-nexus .

Applications for the 2011 Montgomery & Associates Summer Writing Internship at the WRRC will be solicited beginning in March. Any enrolled student in good standing at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University is eligible.
