Natural Resource Workforce Development Fellowship 2023-24
The Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (SW CASC) Natural Resource Workforce Development (NRWD) Fellowship is now recruiting for the 2023-2024 cohort!
The Fellowship was developed to provide currently enrolled graduate students with opportunities for training and practice in developing use-inspired and actionable science to inform natural resource management decisions. Those selected will make up a team of seven scientists, one from each of the SW CASC consortium institutions, who will work together over the course of twelve months, beginning October 2023. Each year, the Fellowship has a different science theme. The 2023-2024 NRWD Fellowship will consider that there is growing consensus among the scientific community that aridity will continue to increase because of increasing air temperature, even if precipitation inputs remain the same. Despite these dire warnings, how well do the public and resource managers understand the increasing aridity phenomenon in contributing to the megadrought in the Southwest U.S.?
Funding includes a stipend of $8,000 with an additional travel allowance of $1,250 for attendance at two team meetings to be held at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. This Fellowship does not include tuition support and should not be used in lieu of a graduate research or teaching assistantship.
The SW CASC welcomes applicants from various cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds, with unique lived experiences, skills and interests.
