TWRI is committed to training the next generation of water resources scientists and engineers.
We have two water research scholarship programs, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Graduate Research Program and Mills Scholars Program, which provide $7,500 scholarships for graduate students to assist in conducting high priority water resources research in Texas.
The 2022-2023 request for proposals is now closed. Our next request for proposals is anticipated to be released early 2023. by the deadline. For any questions about these programs, please contact Danielle Kalisek at Danielle.Kalisek@ag.tamu.edu.
Participating students are not only awarded financially but gain experience in proposal writing and gain exposure through their proposals, reports and posters being posted on our website and their projects being featured in Conservation Matters, our electronic newsletter.
