Water Center Grants

The CSU Water Center is pleased to announce the recipients of our 2017-2018 Competitive Grants Program.
Congratulations to these four Multi-Disciplinary Water Research Teams and three Water Faculty Fellows!


Water Center Awards

Each year the CSU Water Center funds Interdisciplinary Research Teams, Faculty Fellows, and Symposium Planning grants which catalyze transformative water research, teaching, and engagement through collaboration and creative scholarship among CSU faculty and students. These awards provide unique opportunities to accelerate progress in research and enable the academic and experiential realm of water resources for faculty and researchers at CSU.

A new RFP is released at the beginning of the spring semester. Click here for information about the current RFP.
