William R. Walker Graduate Research Fellow Award
Announcements and Application
Graduate students from Virginia Tech are invited each spring to submit applications to the Virginia Water Resources Research Center for the William R. Walker graduate fellowship.

Individuals pursuing graduate work in a water resources field different from the field of emphasis as an undergraduate, or individuals with work experience returning to graduate school to study water resources are especially encouraged to apply.
The Water Center has offered the Walker Award since 1999. The awards are effective at the start of the fall semester each year.
Funds can be used at the recipient’s discretion, during enrollment at a university as a student, for professional development (such as attending workshops and conferences) and purchasing materials that will enhance professional productivity (such as books and software).
