Future Rivers just launched the application for the 2021/22 University of Washington Future Rivers Graduate Trainee program today! It is open to any prospective (incoming fall quarter 2021) or current University of Washington PhD or Master’s students in any discipline.

This is an NSF-funded graduate training program building skills in data science, science communication, and community interaction to bridge work across all fields to better solve today’s global environmental challenges. Applications can be submitted anytime; however, to be considered for funding (up to 18 months), submissions need to be received by January 22, 2021. We request a 1-2 page statement of interest from prospective students and a letter of support from a potential advisor (for new students) or current advisor (for currently enrolled students) – further details on content can be found in the application form.
