NC Water Resources Research Institute Funds Opportunities for Students

Proposals due October 3rd!

The North Carolina Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) offers a graduate student component of our annual call for research proposals and funds several graduate researchers each cycle.

For faculty submissions to our annual funding call, one criteria for proposal evaluation is the level of engagement of student researchers; thus, almost all funded projects support university students, and many also engage K-12 and public audiences with an outreach component included in their project scope.

This is a great opportunity for our coastal area graduate students working on research projects that will lead to the protection of the quality of water and quality of life in coastal North Carolina.” – Lisa Rider, CCRW Executive Director

WRRI issued its annual RFP for graduate student proposals for the FY 2022-2023 Competitive Grants Program.
