Competitions and Internships
Graduate students are encouraged and funded to participate in research competitions hosted at local and national research conferences. The Center also presents an annual award at the Central NM Science and Engineering Research Challenge for high school students whose science fairs relate to water and the environment. The award is called Center for Water and the Environment Excellence Award. The projects are judged by CWE faculty and graduate students and the prize for the winning project is a summer internship in our environmental and water resources laboratories.
