The CREWS Research Seed Award Program is designed to fund innovative research related to water quality and build research capacity across Montana’s higher education institutions. The awards can be used to support personnel costs for faculty, postdoc and student researchers, research supplies, field data collection and analysis costs, and travel. The intent of the CREWS Research Seed Award Program is to pursue novel research activities that support solutions and advance knowledge related to water quality issues and environmental water systems that align with or enhance CREWS research goals and objectives.
Faculty from Montana’s higher education campuses are encouraged to submit applications to pursue research within the broader scope of the CREWS project. Priority will be given to projects that will likely result in publications, research grants, and/or workforce development outcomes.
