Fellowship Program

NWRI's Fellowship program is underwritten by the Joan Irvine Smith & Athalie R. Clarke FoundationNWRI Corporate Associates, and community partners. NWRI is very grateful for the support provided by these partners.


Under the Fellowship program, NWRI awards funding to graduate students in the U.S. conducting research related to water resources and treatment. Please note that students must be currently enrolled full-time in a graduate program at a U.S. university to receive a Fellowship. Students who have not yet been accepted into a graduate program at a U.S. university are not eligible to receive Fellowship funding.
