Available Funds and Conditions
The Michigan Section AWWA offers two separate awards, one in the Undergraduate Fellowship Program and one in the Graduate Fellowship Program. Both programs are one year in length, with fellowships expected to be awarded in January. However, the dates are flexible to accommodate recipient’s academic needs.
Each award is $3,000, $2,000 of which is provided to the student as a stipend. The remaining $1,000 will be transferred into a university account, to be used by the sponsoring professor for research-related expenses. The institution should be able to set up this research account without overhead.
All applicants will also be awarded a one-year AWWA membership. Upon completion of the program, students are encouraged to submit a research paper or present their findings at an AWWA sponsored event.
