Water Resources Research Center Grant

The Water Resources Research Center anticipates receiving approximately $85,000 (subject to Congressional approval) from the U.S. Geological Survey’s State Water Resources Research Institutes Program this year. The center generally offers three or four small grants for projects related to water resources in Hawaiʻi or other Pacific islands using these funds. Proposals for either research or information transfer are considered. Proposals are due on Fri., Oct. 1.

Successful proposals must identify matching funds in the amount of two (2) non-federal dollars for each federal dollar requested. Questions about meeting or documenting this match should be emailed to WRRC Director Chittaranjan Ray.

This program typically funds projects for up to 12 months duration. (Requests for a second year of funding will be considered.)

A typical research project includes federal funds sufficient to cover salary for a graduate student assistant, a modest budget for project-related supplies and travel. Faculty overload requests are strongly discouraged.

Information transfer or education grants will be considered in the range of $5,000 to $10,000. Seed grants will be considered for no more than $5,000.

These grants are intended to be pilot projects or incubators for future research ideas or funding. PIs should comment on how these dollars will leverage other funds in their proposals.

For further information and guidance on applying visit the WRRC website or email Philip Moravcik.
