The Hydro Research Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2014 Research Awards Program.
The awards are worth up to US$32,800 annually for a one or two year research project and are open to graduate students who will complete their Masters or post-Masters research by May 2016.
HRF said the foundation will fund up to 13-20 of the awards.
Applications for the Research Awards Program are due May 5. For a full list of eligibility requirements, visit HRF's website here.
Much of the funding for the program comes from the U.S. Department of Energy's Golden Field Office, which announced a grant sponsoring the awards in January.
Other partners include Knight Piesold and Company, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Hydroelectric Design Center, Weir American Hydro, and the HydroVision International Conference and Exhibition.
The foundation also offers the Hydro Fellowship Program, which, since its inception, has supported 43 undergraduate students from 26 students across the United States.
