2021-2022 NRWD Fellows

The NRWD Fellows selected are graduate students in research-based thesis or dissertation-granting programs at the seven SW CASC consortium institutions. The fellowship science theme this year is Endangered Streams: building strong and authentic bridges between science and practice to understand impacts of future water flows on aquatic ecosystems. The cohort of eight Fellows will continue working together over the course of 12 months via Zoom and conclude with an in-person gathering and final presentation in Fall 2021 at USU.
