Description:
The Urban Water Innovation Network (UWIN) gives 10 students the opportunity to perform cutting edge research of immediate relevance to people in urban areas at institutions across the nation. During 9 weeks, students conduct independent research projects under the guidance of mentor scientists.

To complement their mentored research, students interact in person and/or virtually, give and receive feedback and support, and participate in a rich assortment of enrichment activities, workshops and seminars in transdisciplinary research and urban water sustainability.

Students with different research interests in urban water sustainability - social sciences, natural sciences, engineering - are invited to apply. Students must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its possessions. Underrepresented minorities and first generation college students are encouraged to apply.

Students in the program will receive a stipend of $4,500 plus room and board on-campus or in nearby housing.
