Pathfinder Fellowship

Application Deadline: October 31st
The program enables graduate students to go beyond “one site, one view” in their research.
Graduate training in water science often focuses on a single field site, analytical, or modeling approach. The Pathfinder Fellowship program provides travel funds to graduate students in hydrology and related sciences to make an extended trip to enhance their research by adding a field site to conduct comparative research, collaborating with a research group, or working with researchers on adding an interdisciplinary dimension to a project. Fellowships are awarded to cover travel costs of up to a maximum of $5,000.

Instrumentation Discovery Travel Grant (IDTG)

Application Deadline: September 30th
The program enables scientists to learn the details of hydrologic instrument installation, operation, maintenance, and data processing by visiting experts or scheduling reverse site visit.
CUAHSI offers Instrumentation Discovery Travel Grants (IDTG) of up to $1,000 to help cover travel expenses for scientists at U.S. universities and colleges to visit colleagues with specific instrumentation expertise. The objective of the travel should be to efficiently and economically learn how to install, operate, maintain, and process data from one or more hydrologic instruments. IDTG’s can: (1) enable university scientists to visit other institutions or research sites, or (2) enable a reverse site visit to bring an expert to their own institution.

Water Resources Science & Management Undergraduate Certificate

This certificate is a 15-credit undergraduate program open to students from all colleges and disciplines who are interested in freshwater resources.
Through this program, students will develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the physical, social, and cultural drivers that shape how water is managed within the larger environmental and human landscape. Those completing this certificate will emerge with the breadth of knowledge required to think critically about water issues.
Students earning this certificate will be able to:
• Demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the interdisciplinary and often co-evolving science and policy advances for addressing freshwater issues.
• Utilize fundamentals of the physical sciences to broadly understand the hydrologic cycle and how human management of water influences this cycle.
• Display knowledge of the social, legal, and institutional environment surrounding water resources and management.
• Broaden their professional and social networks to enhance their disciplinary understanding of water and water management.
