Kansas Water Resources Institute calls for 2022 proposals
The Kansas Water Resources Institute is accepting proposals for research grants. This year, the institute expects to fund up to four grants up to $50,000 each. Projects are funded for up to 24 months. Graduate and undergraduate training is encouraged and refereed scientific research publications are an expected output of this program.
Successful proposals will focus on research that explores new ideas to address water problems in Kansas and expands understanding of water and related phenomena within the Kansas context.
Faculty and research staff at state universities — including K-State, University of Kansas, Wichita State University, Emporia State University, Pittsburg State University and Fort Hays State University — may submit proposals. Researchers in the social, biological, physical and engineering sciences, as well as fields such as water management, water law and economics are encouraged to apply. Funded projects start in the fall of 2022, contingent on federal budget approval.
The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. April 15. The full RFP, along with additional details about how to submit and proposal review criteria can be found on the KCARE website.
