Hydro Research Foundation's Fellowship Program continuing in 2012 with new partners

WASHINGTON, DC 11/29/11 (PennWell) -- The Hydro Research Foundation anticipates funding 10 students during its 2012 Fellowship Program, with help from three new industry partners.

For the past two years, the foundation has been working with a $3 million, four-year grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind and Water Power Technology Program. This year, the foundation has new partnerships with Weir American Hydro, Knight Piesold and Co. and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The partnerships will help the program “move toward a sustainable program and offer internships, research facilities, access to knowledge, and career placement opportunities for students,” HRF says.

In past years, fellowships awarded have been worth $55,000-$141,000 over a one- to three-year period of study and include a tuition allowance, living stipend, professional honorarium and participation in the annual Hydro Fellows Roundtables.

The foundation named nine fellows in 2010 and 14 fellows in 2011.

Applications for the 2012 program are due March 1. Announcements of fellows selected will be made on April 4. For more information, visit www.hydrofoundation.org or e-mail brenna@hydrofoundation.org.
