CSU Competitive Grant Program

Each spring the Colorado Water Center (CoWC) funds a select number of Water Research Team, Faculty Fellow, and Education & Engagement Project grants, which catalyze innovative water research, teaching, and engagement through interdisciplinary collaboration and creative scholarship.

These awards provide opportunities to accelerate progress in research and enable projects in the academic and experiential realm of water resources. Read more below to learn about the notable impacts of the Center’s CSU Competitive Grant Program.
