The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) is offering new 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 December 4, 2020. TWRI anticipates awarding at least three applicants with up to $15,000 federal funding each. The federal funding requires a match of two non-federal dollars 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.
Please visit the TWRI Faculty Fellows webpage to view the Request for Applications with more details regarding the fellowship, eligibility, priority areas, budget specifications, award recipient expectations, selection criteria and the application specifics. Feel free to share with any other faculty colleagues within Texas A&M University at College Station, Texas A&M AgriLife Research or Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
For those selected for the fellowship, the scope and budgetary information will be incorporated into TWRI’s overall proposal submission package to USGS and, in cooperation with Sponsored Research Service, TWRI will route the overall proposal through Maestro so all the appropriate personnel may review and approve.
For technical questions regarding the proposal ideas and content, please contact Dr. Lucas Gregory. For budgetary or submission questions, please contact Danielle Kalisek. You can also visit the TWRI website for more about our work.
