The grant will support 10 graduate students from the UA and partner universities who are pursuing dual master’s degrees in environmental sciences and engineering, in a coordinated curriculum focused on water sustainability and reuse.

“Training future professionals to develop and implement water reuse technology requires a collaborative international approach,” said professor Jim Field, assistant dean of graduate education in the UA College of Engineering and coordinator of the study abroad program with the UA Office of Global Initiatives.
