Grant to allow graduate students to research water quantity and quality improvement
Date:7/6/2012

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Water is likely to become an even more important factor in determining human well-being in the near future as the world's population continues to increase. While it is clear that the demand for water will steadily rise, it also appears that water supply could decline as a result of major shifts in the world's climate.

To address and anticipate pressing questions on water quantity and quality issues and train the next generation of "water scholars," the One Health Center at the University of California, Riverside has received a five-year, $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

Formally called Water SENSE IGERT (SENSE is an acronym for Social, Engineering, and Natural Sciences Engagement), the training grant will allow graduate students from vastly disparate disciplines to conduct doctoral-level research on water quantity and quality.

Starting this fall, six or seven graduate students will receive fellowships for two years from the Water SENSE IGERT program, and another six or seven students will receive fellowships in the second and third years of the grant. Slightly fewer students will receive the fellowships in the fourth year of the grant. Each fellowship is accompanied by an annual stipend of approximately $30,000.

The fellows will obtain training in interdisciplinary research on water issues as well as preparation for leadership positions in government and private and nonprofit organizations aimed at improving community health and child development outcomes related to water.

"We expect our fellows will gain substantive interdisciplinary knowledge that allows them to understand and engage in technical problems, direct project teams, communicate their knowledge, advise policy makers and raise public awareness of water-related issues," said
