USDA-NIFA-CGP-006325: Higher Education Challenge Grants Program

https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=292849

Projects supported by the Higher Education Challenge Grants Program will: (1) address a state, regional, national, or international educational need; (2) involve a creative or non-traditional approach toward addressing that need that can serve as a model to others; (3) encourage and facilitate better working relationships in the university science and education community, as well as between universities and the private sector, to enhance program quality and supplement available resources; and (4) result in benefits that will likely transcend the project duration and USDA support.

USGS Model Evaluation Summer SESSION

USGS is seeking summer interns to evaluate hydrologic cycle models and observational data across the United States.  A prototype tool has been developed that allows exploration of observations and model results at several spatial and temporal scales.  During the summer, a team of students will engage in rigorous application of this tool to identify the strengths and weaknesses of existing models of the hydrologic cycle.  Students will also have the opportunity to improve the tool and add functionality.  Through frequent interactions with developers of hydrologic models within USGS, interns will be challenged to think critically about the representation of hydrologic processes used in models and to consider alternative strategies towards model development and evaluation. This unique summer session will be held at the USGS offices in the Denver Federal Center.

Applications are due through USAJobs by April 14.

https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/467089700

Project leads for this summer session are William Farmer, Lauren Hay, and Julie Kiang.  Please contact William Farmer with any questions (wfarmer@usgs.gov, 303-236-4981).
