Cornell University - New York State Water Resources Institute (WRI) and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC)
Grants to New York researchers and faculty members at institutions of higher education for studies that address water quality concerns across the state. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for applied research, outreach, and policy analysis that promote the state’s watershed action agenda goals.
Statewide Water Research and Outreach Agenda:
For additional information about these program themes, begin here: https://wri.cals.cornell.edu/sites/wri.cals.cornell.edu/files/shared/WRI_RFP_2022_NYS.pdf#page=7
Apart from the agenda cited above, funding may be justified based on the relevance of the proposed work to various watershed and thematic action agendas listed here: https://wri.cals.cornell.edu/sites/wri.cals.cornell.edu/files/shared/WRI_RFP_2022_NYS.pdf#page=1.
Proposals that do not directly address research and action agenda priorities may advance if they demonstrate exceptional novelty and value as it pertains to emerging critical water resource issues for NYS. Researchers supported through these programs will be expected to work within a broader integrated group and to work closely and collaboratively with WRI staff.
