Watershed Innovations Grant Program
WINS was created to catalyze lasting collaborative initiatives that will build and strengthen the growing interdisciplinary expertise around water resources at the University of Minnesota. The WRC is assisting by providing in-kind contributions, including Graduate Research Assistantships support for students enrolled in the Water Resources Science (WRS Graduate Program), services to develop proposals securing future external sources of funding, and workforce development in the form of a Watershed Innovations Learning Community. This Community will enhance professional development training for the future generation of watershed science leaders in the variety of skills necessary to conduct impactful and applied science and outreach.
