EWRI Student Chapters

The Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI), via the Student Council is calling for applications from students and faculty members (that work in areas relevant to the EWRI mission) that want to form new EWRI student chapters across the US, or that want to support existing EWRI chapters.

This is a great opportunity for students and faculty to have financial support and focus on developing students’ professional skills while working on the development of local, regional and national networks with the environmental and water resources community.
