AWRA American Water Resources Association Washington Section

The launching of the new mentorship program. This opportunity is available to all members and student members of AWRA.
The goal of the AWRA-WA mentorship program is to connect young professionals and students in the field of water resources with experienced professionals who share a similar specialty and are interested in building a mentoring relationship. Those interested in being mentored can apply here, and will be required to enter some basic information which will help AWRA connect you with an appropriate mentor. AWRA will do its best to connect you with a mentor within 2 weeks of your application. Applicants will be connected with mentors on a first-come first-served basis, and in the case that an appropriate mentor cannot be found immediately, you will be contacted. The expectation is that once mentors and mentees are connected, they will arrange for mentoring activities as appropriate.
We are also always looking for experienced professionals who are interested in being mentors. Those interested can volunteer by filling out some basic information here. Volunteers’ information will be entered in our database of possible mentors, and mentors will always be contacted to confirm their availability and interest prior to connecting you with a potential mentee.
For any questions about the mentoring program, please contact Tom FitzHugh.

Join us in welcoming Sandra Postel as our keynote speaker. Postel is the Founder of The Global Water Policy Project, author of “Replenish: The Virtuous Cycle of Water and Prosperity” and National Geographic Freshwater Fellow.
A world traveler and water resource expert, the water resource stories Postel shares consider the costs and benefits of past water engineering feats, and new approaches to conserve and utilize this precious resource. As population growth continues and climate change challenges the capacity of our current infrastructure, her experiences and thoughts are well worth sharing.

Natural Resource Conservation Endowment Fund 2018 Call for Proposals

The Natural Resource Conservation Endowment Fund was established by Jane P. Conrad and entrusted to Washington State University in 1982 to provide seed money for supporting research and projects related to, but not limited to, energy, small-scale agricultural concepts, community education, wildlife conservation and/or recovery, related psychological and sociological studies, domestic and international studies, and other projects related to conservation of renewable and non-renewable natural resources, including biotic and abiotic ecological components. The proposed work should be oriented toward practical application of theory rather than strictly theory-oriented research to provide public uses or participants with a maximum opportunity to benefit.
Applications will be accepted from currently enrolled WSU graduate students in good standing with the Graduate School. An individual or a graduate student group may apply. Interdisciplinary and collaborative proposals in such areas as education, psychology, sociology, environmental engineering, sciences, agriculture and veterinary sciences are encouraged.
Proposal Submission Deadline: 5 PM on April 12, 2018, the eREX must be submitted 2 days prior to the deadline in order to meet WSU guidelines for submission.
For more information and to apply.
