Call for Applications: Rose Graduate Fellowship in Water Research


Graduate Students

Applications are open for the Rose Graduate Fellowship in Water Research. The Rose Graduate Fellowship in Water Research will benefit students enrolled in any graduate program at MSU to help to address the looming global water crisis and support the next generation of scientists who will help us solve water problems here in Michigan, the Great Lakes, nationally, and globally. One award will be issued each year provided a suitable applicant can be identified. Fellowships will be approximately $1,800.

About the Rose Fellowship: Dr. Joan and Tom Rose, who live in Williamston, have strong ties to Michigan State University. Joan’s position as professor and the Homer Nowlin Chair in Water Research in Fisheries and Wildlife coupled with her passion for water, motivated the couple to establish a fellowship fund to support graduate students on campus who are doing research in water: fresh or salt. A part of the Roses’ gift came from the Athalie Richardson Irvine Clarke Water Prize, presented to Dr. Rose in 2001 for significant contributions to Water Science and Technology, from the National Water Research Institute.
