The Horton Research Grant is a grant awarded to Ph.D. students studying hydrology, water resources, or a closely related field. The grant is awarded to up to three students each year. It is funded by the Robert E. Horton Fund for Hydrologic Research to promote excellence through encouraging the next generation of professionals in the hydrological sciences.
Awardees are recognized at the AGU Fall Meeting where they receive a one-year grant (not to exceed $10,000) to cover research costs and related travel expenses ($500 for students in the United States and Canada; $1,000 for international students).
Applications open: 3 February 2020
Application deadline: 1 May 2020
To be eligible to receive the Horton Research Grant applicants must meet the following criteria. Applicants who do not win an award are encouraged to apply again in subsequent years if they meet the criteria.
Proposals are judged using criteria adapted from the National Science Foundation:
Grant recipients will receive payment in two installments. The first installment is presented at AGU’s Fall Meeting. The second installment is given the following June upon receipt by the Hydrology Section president of a brief progress report.
