2019 National Water Center Innovators Program
Summer Institute
Application Deadline: January 15th  
This program is a unique seven-week immersive experience that brings together graduate students, academic researchers, and National Water Center staff. Participants design and collaborate on projects that advance National Water Model capabilities, enhancing the nation’s ability to respond to water hazards.

CUAHSI is soliciting applications from students who wish to participate in the 2019 National Water Center (NWC) Summer Institute under the auspices of the NWC’s Innovator’s Program. The Summer Institute will take place at the University of Alabama and the National Water Center fromJune 10 - July 26, 2019. Student research fellows will collaborate intensively for seven weeks to work on projects designed to contribute to the NWC goals of enhancing water-related products and decision-support services across the country. To facilitate this process, project themes have been defined in advance. The Summer Institute will be led by faculty theme leads and daily oversight will be provided by student course coordinators.

Students participating in the Summer Institute will be grouped into teams organized around projects defined by the theme leaders and pre-selected topics. While there may be some overlap with the students' individual MS/PhD research projects, the expectation is that the work and research done during the Summer Institute will be a seperate, self-contained project.

The 2019 Summer Institute will explore projects around the following themes:

  1. Coupled inland-coastal hydraulics   
  2. Scaling hydrologic and hydraulic models from small basins to regional watersheds
  3. Utilizing hydroinformatics to address flood inundation
  4. Support remote sensing of water information through engagement with the computer science community


Eligibility: Applications will be accepted from current and incoming graduate students enrolled in a university program. Applicants must be affiliated with US universities. Applicants who are not US citizens will need to report their visa status. Due to security regulations, all accepted applicant’s involvement in the SI will be contingent upon a foreign national visitor approval process. Upon acceptance into the program all participants will need to provide additional security clearance documents and fingerprints, and must be cleared by NOAA Security.

Additionally, students must be able to reside on-site at the University of Alabama for the entire program. Students should also expect to provide their own laptop computer. If this is a limiting factor, we may be able to work with you and provide a device to borrow during the SI.

Applications must be submitted by January 15th.
