2011 Cohort Application Procedures

Students in the social sciences, natural sciences and engineering who are 1) interested in integrative, cross-disciplinary research, 2) have a passion for understanding interactions between human and natural systems, and 3) are interested in watershed nutrient dynamics, management and policy are encouraged to apply for this PhD Fellowship program. Persons from groups traditionally under-represented in science and engineering professions are particularly encouraged to apply.

Note that the application process involves applying to both the University and the Water Institute Graduate Fellows program separately. Application deadline February 11, 2011.

Part 1: University Application

Doctoral students are admitted to the University through a department, not to the Water Institute Graduate Fellows program directly.  Therefore you must contact a faculty member from our list of affiliated faculty, whose interests and departmental affiliation are consistent with your interests, and make an application to the University of Florida Graduate School through their academic department. See http://www.admissions.ufl.edu/prospectivegraduate.html for Graduate School information.

Part 2: Water Institute Graduate Fellow Program Application


Applications will be accepted through February 11, 2011. Promising applicants will be invited to visit University of Florida to meet the program faculty and other potential students during March 4-6th, 2011. Students will be notified of decisions by E-mail no later than March 15, 2011. SELECTED STUDENTS WILL HAVE TO REPORT TO THE UNIVERSITY BY AUGUST 8th, 2011.
