DWFI held its annual Water for Food Student Research Forum in April at the Wick Alumni Center on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s city campus. Students receiving support from DWFI and their Faculty Fellow advisors shared results from their research and networked with other students, faculty, and the DWFI team. Newly-awarded students were also invited to attend and will begin to receive funding from the institute in the 2023-2024 academic year.
Since it was initiated in 2014, the DWFI student support program has invested over $3.6 million to support undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral research across all four University of Nebraska campuses and is DWFI's largest program area. The award amount from DWFI is matched one-to-one with faculty funds, ensuring a student can be supported full-time through a master's or PhD program.
