Water Scholar Award: Application Information

The Colorado State University Water Resources Archive offers an annual Water Scholar Award.

This annual award grants funding to researchers whose work on western water would benefit from access to the collection. The award is intended to help offset the expenses of researchers engaged in studies that will benefit from access to the holdings of the Water Resources Archive as well as costs associated with presentations, publications, or other products resulting from that research. For the 2024 award, the total amount of funding is capped at $1,600 (new amount, as of 12/12/23).

Applications are due January 31. Find full information in PDF file below.

We welcome applicants from any profession and any discipline, as well as from anywhere in the U.S. and abroad. We especially welcome graduate student applicants. Email Patty Rettig (link at right) with any questions.
