Water for Food

Graduate Student Support Page

In 2014-2015, the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute distributed a total of $310,000 to nine faculty fellows as part of its inaugural student and postdoctoral support program. These grants provide stipends to eleven students and postdoctoral fellows working on projects that contribute to a more water and food secure world. In 2015-2016, the institute will award up to $16,000 each to support up to 7 graduate students at the MS or PhD level.

Overall, the grants program supports interdisciplinary faculty research while enriching the education of students who will one day be scientific leaders in the effort to feed the world’s growing population with limited natural resources.
