Student Scholarships for Water Resources Research
The Institute is committed to training the next generation of water resources scientists and engineers.
We have two water research scholarship programs, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Graduate Research Program and Mills Scholars Program, which provide $5,000 scholarships for graduate students to assist in conducting high priority water resources research in Texas.
TWRI's Graduate Student Research Program Pre-Proposal application period is now closed. The request for proposals is typically released early in the fall semester with applications due back to TWRI around the end of October. You can view the 2017-2018 RFP as an example.
Participating students are not only awarded financially but gain experience in proposal writing and gain exposure through their proposals, reports and posters being posted on our website and their projects being featured in Conservation Matters, our electronic newsletter.
Since 2001, we have awarded $971,100 to more than 302 graduate students at universities throughout Texas conducting water research including:
