FY 2024 Water Resource Research Grant Proposal Request

Dear Colleagues, 

Greetings. The Georgia Water Resources Institute (GWRI) invites the submission of research proposals for the water resources research grant opportunity outlined below.  

104b State Research Program

GWRI expects to provide federal funding of up to $21,000 for each of five research projects to be carried out from September 1, 2024, to August 31, 2025.  In addition, GWRI expects to support the planning of the biennial Georgia Water Resources Conference in the amount of $12,500. The 104b grant program carries a mandatory cost-sharing requirement to match each federal dollar with no less than one dollar from non-federal sources. Full time faculty at any Georgia university are eligible to serve as PIs and submit research proposals. The proposals will be reviewed and ranked based on (a) technical merit and (b) research relevance for Georgia. The deadline for proposal submission is 5:00 pm EST, May 3, 2024.

The FY 2024 RFP for this program has not yet been published by USGS but is expected to be similar to the FY 2023 RFP which is attached along with templates for the preparation of the project budget and associated justification. Please email proposals (in pdf form) and budget spreadsheets to the GWRI Director (Aris Georgakakos; ageorgak@ce.gatech.edu) with copy to the GWRI Assistant Director for Research (Husayn El Sharif; helsharif@gatech.edu). Proposal PIs will be notified of the review process outcomes in early May 2024. 

For questions on the 104b proposal process, please email the GWRI Asst. Director helsharif@gatech.edu). 

With best regards,

Aris P. Georgakakos
