Fellowships, Assistantships and Internships

Check out some of the students we help fund and work with through our William R. Walker graduate fellowship and internships! These are a few of the ways that the VWRRC helps support interdisciplinary, meaningful water research and projects.


Undergraduate Water Scholarships and Research Fellowships

Opportunities are available for undergraduate students enrolled in the Water: Resources, Policy, and Management (WRPM) B.S. program at Virginia Tech.

Undergraduate Internships at the Center

Undergraduate internship opportunities at the Water Center are year-round research opportunities typically for junior and senior level undergraduates at Virginia Tech. Each year, the Water Center recruits Virginia Tech undergraduates to assist with projects and participate in sponsored research directed by the center’s staff.

Students are paid hourly wages. The number of students and wage rates depend on the available resources.  The Center typically supports one internship per academic year.

 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) internships

This program provides undergraduate and graduate students with career-enhancing field, laboratory, and research experience through participation in USGS activities as interns. The program is available in selected states.

The Water Center facilitates these occasional internship opportunities for students at any Virginia college and university.  When there are available internships at Virginia Tech, they will be listed here.
