Application Deadline: April 15, 2017
The Horton Research Grant for Ph.D. students promotes excellence through encouragement of the next generation of professionals in the hydrological sciences. Each year the grant has been awarded to up to three students during their candidacy for a Ph.D. degree in hydrology, water resources, or a closely related field. The award provides a one-year grant (typically $10,000) to cover research costs and travel expenses related to attendance of the American Geophysical Union fall meeting ($500 U.S. /$1,000 international).
- Graduate students are eligible at any point in their doctoral program in hydrology, water resources, or a closely related field, with the stipulation that they will be enrolled PhD students throughout the duration of the grant. It is expected that one grant will be directed towards a PhD student in the first half of his/her studies.
- Appropriate topics may be in hydrology (including its physical, chemical, or biological aspects) or in water resources policy sciences (including economics, systems analysis, sociology and law).
- U.S. citizenship is not a requirement to apply.
- Recipients must be active student members of the American Geophysical Union.
