The Illinois Water Resources Center (IWRC) requests proposals to fund exploratory research or educational projects that enhance water sciences research and higher education throughout Illinois. Their 2021 priority topics are:
- ecosystem structure and function
- water-energy nexus
- health science (no human subjects research)
- urban resilience.
They are particularly interested in supporting projects that will help grow the body of research in Illinois, including proof-of-concept projects that may help researchers attract larger grants. Proposals continuing the work of previous IWRC Annual Research Grants will not be accepted. This is an open call contingent on funding availability.
Letter of Intent Due to IWRC: Tuesday, September 8, 2020 – 5pm CDT
