Student Engagement

Central to J-WAFS’ mission is the cultivation of the next generation of leaders in the water and food sectors. 

Through funding opportunities, events, support for clubs and entrepreneurship, and mentorship, we endeavor to expose students across the Institute to exciting research, networking, and professional opportunities in water and food.

Examples of our work in this area

“If it weren’t for the J-WAFS fellowship, I would have had to seek funding [through grants] for work on completely different topics.   Thanks to J-WAFS, I had the funding to focus on my work in my last year and finish my dissertation.”
