Water Resources Research Institute Funding Opportunities

NJWRRI Funding through USGS

Graduate Student Grants-In-Aid - Fiscal Year 2021

Up to six awards of up to $5,000 each will be funded. These funds are intended to allow graduate students to pursue research that is not supported by other grant funds, or to carry out preliminary research to develop fundable thesis projects. The funds can be used for research assistant support, travel, supplies, or other direct research expenses. The student will be expected to present the results of the research at a regional or national scientific meeting. Proposals are selected for their relevance to New Jersey's water resources and for the scientific merit and the promise of future productivity.

Junior Faculty-Initiated Projects - Fiscal Year 2021

Up to three projects of up to $20,000 each will be funded. This funding is intended to support junior faculty (i.e., postdoctoral associate and/or assistant professor) for a major study. The investigator should indicate how the funding will act as a "seed grant" to spur the development of a larger research program on water resource problems and what other sources of funding may be availble or may be sought to continue the research. All projects are selected based on their relevance to New Jersey's water resources.
