TWRI Faculty Fellows Program FY2024-25 Request for Proposals

The Texas Water Resources Institute is offering its third annual Faculty Fellowship opportunities through the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) 104b program to provide resources in support of the development and submission of proposals for external funding. TWRI is seeking applicants who are engaged in water resources-related research and are looking to build their research acumen; expand their colleague and collaborator network; and gain valuable experience in leading diverse, multi-partner research proposals.

The deadline for submission of applications for this opportunity is February 1, 2023. TWRI anticipates awarding at least two applicants with up to $15,000 federal funding each. The federal funding requires a match of one non-federal dollar to each federal dollar received in the award. Funding will remain available for use by awardees for one year after the award date. No extensions will be granted.
