To apply to the Water Resources Graduate Program, you should first complete an application form that can be obtained online from the Graduate School.
**On your application, you will be asked to provide the names of two faculty members whose research areas match your interests. This will help us identify ALL faculty members whose research interests most closely align with yours to place your application in front of faculty members most likely to consider accepting you as an advisee.**
In addition to submitting the application form and paying the application fee to the Graduate School, to complete your application we need to receive the following*:
*Additional items may be sent directly to the Graduate School office.
In order to receive full consideration for all financial aid opportunities, it is best to apply in the Fall. Applications are due by or before the first Monday of January. This allows us time to review applications and nominate students for tuition awards, fellowships, and any teaching or research assistantships that may be available. While we do offer a year round application process and some applicants may periodically be accepted after this date, most non-fall applicants will miss out on many funding opportunities and chances of acceptance are greatly decreased.
Most of our students are financially supported by the faculty of the program through externally-funded grants and contracts. The match between your background and interests and these opportunities is central to obtaining such support. We encourage you to contact faculty to explore areas of common interest and opportunity. Please note that even students who are granted support are responsible for paying student fees each term.
