Fellowship Program

NWRI's Fellowship program is underwritten by BioLargo, Inc., the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA), Southern California Salinity Coalition (SCSC), NWRI Corporate Associates, and community partners. NWRI is grateful for this support.


Under the Fellowship program, NWRI awards funding to graduate students in the U.S. conducting research related to water resources and treatment. Please note that students must be currently enrolled full-time in a graduate program at a U.S. university to receive a Fellowship. Students who have not yet been accepted into a graduate program at a U.S. university are not eligible to receive Fellowship funding.


The 2018-2020 Fellowships have been awarded.  We anticipate that the next application period will begin in November 2019.
