|Water Resources Research Institute seeks fellowship applications|
The North Dakota Water Resources Research Institute (ND WRRI) has announced its 2007 Graduate Research Fellowship program. UND and NDSU graduate students who are conducting or planning research in water resources areas may apply for fellowships varying from three summer months to a full year in duration.
Typically, past fellowship awards for master’s degree students have been in the range of $800-$1,000, and for doctoral students $1,000-$1,400 per month. The fellowship funds must be applied for between March 1, 2007, and Feb. 29, 2008.
Projects proposed for fellowship support should relate to water resources research issues in the state or region. Regional, state or local collaborations or co-funding will strengthen an application. Fellowships have a matching requirement of two non-federal dollars to one federal dollar. Applicants should have a plan of study filed and should have a thesis research topic chosen at the time of applying. Applications need to be prepared in consultation with advisors. Advisers of the applicant should co-sign the applications.
Applications are due in the office of the director by 5 p.m. Nov. 17. The proposals will be reviewed by a panel of faculty and state water resources research professionals. Announcement of awards will be made by early January.
Consult the ND WRRI website, http://www.ndsu.edu/wrri, for information on the program and guidelines for preparation of applications. Applicants and advisers who are new to the program are urged to contact ND WRRI Director, G. Padmanabhan, ND WRRI director, at (701) 231-7043, or G.Padmanabhan@ndsu.nodak.edu.
