RFP available at FY 2016 NM WRRI Faculty Directed Graduate Student Research Program

The New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute (NM WRRI) announces the availability of U.S. Geological Survey 104B grant funds. These funds are made available through the Water Resources Research Act to support research that improves management of the waters of the state of New Mexico. For Fiscal Year 2016, NM WRRI anticipates funding two $30,000 grants with 104B funds. The final number of funded projects is contingent on funding.

Funding is intended primarily to support graduate students. Proposals are welcomed from any academic discipline; they must identify a significant water resources problem and conduct applied or basic research that will be part of the proposed solution. Principal investigators must hold tenure-track positions at a New Mexico university. For this funding cycle, proposals are sought in two priority topic areas:

• integrated statewide water budget processes and components
• water planning and management
• water quality projects
