North Carolina’s Water Resources Research Institute and Sea Grant programs are seeking applications for graduate student research projects in the areas of contaminants, aquaculture and watershed management.

Up to five $10,000 fellowships are available. The deadline to apply is: Nov. 5, 2018 at 5 p.m.

Students and faculty advisors of color in particular are encouraged to apply, as well as students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and/or Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs). Also encouraged are projects that could benefit traditionally under-represented or underserved communities. For more eligibility information, click the link below.

Projects should address the missions of both programs and should fall into one or a combination of these three focus areas:

  • Emerging regulated and unregulated contaminants of concern
  • Aquaculture development and issues related to water resources
  • Community development and stormwater/watershed management

Details of the request for proposal and application instructions are available here.
