The SWS Diversity Program is now accepting student applications for the 2015 Undergraduate Mentoring Program

The SWS Undergraduate Mentoring Program is dedicated to increasing diversity in the field of wetland science by offering undergraduate students from underrepresented groups full travel awards to the SWS 2015 Annual Meeting held in Providence, Rhode Island, May 31 – June 4, 2015. Student winners will receive valuable career mentoring as well as exposure to professional networking forums. This program is supported by the National Science Foundation and several SWS Chapters.

Applicant Requirements: Students must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States and enrolled in a degree program (part-time or full-time) leading to a baccalaureate or associates degree. Winners will be selected based on academic promise, interest in exploring a career in the natural sciences and potential for serving as a mentor. Visit the SWS Undergraduate Mentoring Program webpage for more information and to apply today! Please contact Dr. Vanessa Lougheed with any questions. Application deadline is November 7, 2014.

Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) Pathfinder Graduate Student Fellowships

Graduate training in water science often focuses on a single field site, analytical, or modeling approach. The CUAHSI Pathfinder Fellowship program provides travel funds to graduate students in water science to make an extended trip to conduct and enhance their research. Fellowships are awarded to cover travel costs up to a maximum of $5000. This opportunity allows students to travel to an additional field site to conduct comparative research, collaborate with a research group, or work with researchers on adding an inter-disciplinary dimension to a water science project.
