WRRC Invites Research Proposals
Jan. 14, 2022
Faculty and research personnel at any of Arizona's three public universities are invited to submit research proposals to the WRRC for grants of up to $10,000. Proposals should feature student work and explore new ideas to address water problems in AZ and the Southwest and expand understanding of water and related phenomena. Proposals from a broad range of academic disciplines and professional programs will be considered. Additionally, proposals that increase diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, and address issues in historically marginalized or underserved communities are highly encouraged. Last year, the WRRC funded two projects: one that investigated groundwater age distribution and another that looked at the diversity of voices in water resources. These research grants are funded through the 104(b) grants program of the U.S. Geological Survey under the federal Water Resources Research Act. This year’s Request for Proposals includes a significant change from previous grant cycles: the cost-sharing requirement was decreased by half from 2:1 to 1:1 local-to-federal match! Proposals are due by 5:00 pm MST on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
