We have an exciting fellowship opportunity that will support 200 master’s students at $25,000, 180 undergraduate students at $11,000, and 41 community college transfer students at $7,500.

ARI was awarded a five-year, $9.5 million NIFA NEXTGEN grant, with 89% of the grant used to directly support students to engage in research and professional projects and professional development workshops.  

All students will work on a research or professional project, attend professional development workshops, and have the opportunity to receive travel support to attend a professional meeting.

We are now recruiting for the Summer and Fall 2024 cohort.

To qualify:

  1. The student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  2. Must be enrolled as a full-time student.
  3. Must plan to pursue a food, agriculture, natural resource, or human science (FANH) career, or plan to attend graduate school in a FANH-related discipline.
  4. Must have a faculty mentor.
  5. Must be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident.

In addition, as part of the ARI-NextGen program, we are recruiting four students for internships with the Environmental Defense Fund and the city of Los Angeles to work on climate resilient water systems program (EDF) and whole-city RO water reclamation (city of LA).  Students working with EDF or LA City will receive the ARI-NextGen Fellowship and support for travel, room and board if needed.
