Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program, University of Washington
The Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at University of Washington is getting ready to recruit students for next summer. The goal of this two-year conservation immersion program is to broaden participation within conservation, and diversify what it means to be a "conservation professional." The program is looking for 20 freshmen and sophomores to join for an 8-week immersion course this summer. The program starts in Seattle and travels to various ExUrban (wildlands and rural) landscapes in Washington addressing urban conservation issues. Scholars don't have to be environmental science, or even science, majors, but should demonstrate a commitment to the environment and to diversity, and be curious, creative and enthusiastic - incipient change-makers. Because the program is geared for students early in their college careers, we are only able to take freshmen and sophomores. You can learn more about the program at www.uwconservationscholars.org The application process will begin November 16, 2015 and end January 29, 2016.
WRRC Invites Proposals for Research Grants under the Water Resources Research Act
The University of Arizona's Water Resources Research Center invites proposals for research grants under the Water Resources Research Act, Section 104(b). Funded by the U.S. Geological Survey, the Section 104(b) program provides support for research projects on water-related issues of importance to the state and region. This year the WRRC expects to award three (3) grants of approximately $10,000. Projects are funded for 12 months. Funded projects start March 1, 2016, contingent on federal budget approval. The WRRC directs 104(b) grant funds to a wide variety of research projects. Faculty members at the three Arizona state universities may submit proposals. Researchers in the social, biological, physical and engineering sciences, as well as such fields as water management, water law, economics and public health are invited to apply. Proposals should address WRRA Section 104(b) program goals, including exploration of new ideas to address water problems in Arizona and expand understanding of water and related phenomena. WRRA Section 104(b) research should foster improvements in water supply: addressing issues of water yield and water reliability, water quality, treatment, infrastructure, and assessment of management practices. Proposals should also align with USGS strategic goals for water research as described in Strategic Directions for U.S. Geological Survey Water Science, 2012-2022-Observing, Understanding, Predicting, and Delivering Water Science to the Nation at http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2012/1066/. Primary program goals are to foster the entry of new research scientists, engineers and technicians in the water resources field and to educate students through significant involvement in water research. Proposals that address these goals, in addition to meeting criteria for technical merit, will be given preference. Proposals must be submitted electronically via the National Institutes for Water Resources (NIWR) web site. In addition, 12 hard copies must be submitted to the WRRC. Proposal guidelines are available on the WRRC web site: https://wrrc.arizona.edu/programs/grant-proposal-guidelines. Proposals are due by 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 18, 2015. The WRRC will convene a review committee to evaluate proposals on technical merit and contribution to program goals. The WRRC decision to fund projects will be based on this input and available funding.
