The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) is offering its third annual Faculty Fellowship opportunities through the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) 104b program to provide resources in support of the development and submission of proposals for external funding. TWRI is seeking applicants who are engaged in water resources-related research and are looking to build their research acumen; expand their colleague and collaborator network; and gain valuable experience in leading diverse, multi-partner research proposals.
The deadline for submission of applications for this opportunity is now closed. We anticipate the next RFP to be released January 2024. TWRI anticipates awarding at least two applicants with up to $15,000 federal funding each. The federal funding requires a match of one non-federal dollar to each federal dollar received in the award. Funding will remain available for use by awardees for one year after the award date. No extensions will be granted.
Please see the Request for Proposals with more details regarding the fellowship, eligibility, priority areas, budget specifications, award recipient expectations, selection criteria and the application specifics. Feel free to share with any other faculty colleagues within Texas A&M University at College Station, Texas A&M AgriLife Research, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (Research and Extension personnel on and off main campus are eligible), and all other Texas A&M University System universities and agencies.
For those selected for the fellowship, the scope and budgetary information will be incorporated into TWRI’s overall proposal submission package to USGS and, in cooperation with Sponsored Research Service, TWRI will route the overall proposal through Maestro so all the appropriate personnel may review and approve.
For technical questions regarding the proposal ideas and content, please contact Lucas Gregory, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org.
