Iowa Water Center Seed Grant and Graduate Student Research Competition Now Open

September 11, 2017

The Iowa Water Center annual grant competition is now open to receive research proposals. Funding of up to $30,000 is available for one research project at Iowa’s accredited public or private universities or community colleges. As seed grant funding, this program enables researchers to explore innovative ideas that will grow to be tools to assist in building future water-related policies and practices.

Funding of up to $5,000 for one year is available for a maximum of three graduate students nearing completion of their program of study. This program allows for students to complete additional research objectives or products beyond the scope of their current water related funded project. Iowa Water Center staff is available to assist students in their submissions.

Proposal deadline: Nov. 8, 2017
