Watershed Innovations (WINS)
Grants Program

Final Proposals due November 1, 2021

The Water Resources Center (WRC), in cooperation with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences, the Water Resources Research Institutes program at the U.S. Geological Survey, and the Midwest Big Data Innovation Hub, invites proposals for Watershed Innovations (WINS) graduate research assistantships. 

The purpose of WINS is to catalyze lasting collaborations that are enhanced by WRC capabilities. The program seeks to support projects in which researchers: innovate to address important water resource concerns in Minnesota; collaborate to advance interdisciplinary inquiry; educate students and early-career researchers on team science skills; and sustain research efforts through new funding sources. 

This solicitation seeks proposals to support graduate research assistants enrolled in the Water Resources Science (WRS) program. Each award will support salary and tuition-inclusive fringe benefits for a 0.5 FTE WRS graduate research assistant for a duration of 24 months, plus up to $5,000 per year for student professional development and research-related costs. The principal investigator (PI) is expected to be the student’s academic advisor (or co-advisor) to supervise them on a research project to be described in the proposal.

The complete Request for Proposals and proposal templates are available on the WRC Funding Opportunities webpage.
