In 1982, the Hydrology Section of AGU was granted access to a portion of the income of the Robert E. Horton Fund for Hydrologic Research. This permitted the initiation of the Horton Research Grant for Ph.D. students, with a purpose to promote excellence through encouragement of the next generation of professionals in the hydrological sciences. The first Horton Research Grant was awarded in 1983. Each year the grant has been awarded to up to three students during their candidacy for a Ph.D. degree in hydrology, water resources, or a closely related field.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Graduate students are eligible at any point in their doctoral program in hydrology, water resources, or a closely related field, with the stipulation that they will be enrolled PhD students throughout the duration of the grant (one year from the Fall Meeting where they receive the award.)
- It is expected that one grant will be directed towards a PhD student in the first half of his/her studies.
Appropriate topics may be in hydrology (including its physical, chemical, or biological aspects) or in water resources policy sciences (including economics, systems analysis, sociology and law).
Funding may be used to cover research costs and travel expenses.
Those who do not win an award in any given year are eligible to apply again in subsequent years.
U.S. citizenship is not a requirement to apply.
- Financial need is not a criterion in the selection of the successful candidate.
You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member.
