2013 Cohort Application Procedures


We seek students in the natural sciences and engineering who are interested in integrative, cross-disciplinary research aimed at understanding the potential impacts of sea level change on coastal aquifers and ecosystems. Applicants should have a Masterís degree in natural sciences, social sciences or engineering with strong demonstrated interest in water issues. Exceptional students with a Bachelor's degree plus research experience in an appropriate discipline will also be considered. 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 January 15, 2013.

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

Timeline

Applications will be accepted through January 15, 2012. Promising applicants will be invited to visit University of Florida to meet the program faculty and other potential students during February 22-24, 2013. Students will be notified of decisions by E-mail no later than March 15, 2013. SELECTED STUDENTS WILL HAVE TO REPORT TO THE UNIVERSITY BY AUGUST 5th, 2013.
