Colorado Water Center Student Fellowship

The Colorado Water Center Student Fellowship at CSU aims to elevate and serve groups that have been historically excluded and underserved in the water sector. Each cohort of CoWC Student Fellows partners with CSU faculty, staff, and community members to explore topics in water sustainability and environmental justice and equity. The Fellows work with community members to support projects that benefit the environment and improve livelihoods.

The CoWC Student Fellowship provides a platform for previously excluded voices in conversations and decision-making around water. We draw on the strengths and perspectives of students from underrepresented groups and students with community engagement skills.

The Colorado Water Center Student Fellowship program invites undergraduate students from historically excluded racial and/or ethnic backgrounds interested in water careers to apply for the 2021 cohort.
