(Now Closed) 104B Annual Water Resources Research Act Program Funding Opportunity

The Illinois Water Resources Center (IWRC) requests proposals to fund exploratory research or educational projects that enhance water sciences research and higher education throughout Illinois. Although we are interested in supporting all water resources studies that affect Illinois, our 2024 priority topics are artificial intelligence applications and water resources, ecohydrology and public health in urban settings, social and environmental justice in water resources management, and synergy among multiple-scale spatiotemporal complex water systems.

We are particularly interested in supporting projects that will help grow the body of research in Illinois, including proof-of-concept projects that may help researchers attract larger grants. Proposals continuing the work of previous IWRC Annual Research Grants will not be accepted. This is an open call contingent on funding availability.
