Commencement 2019!

Congratulations to our 2019 Graduates!

Congratulations to Ph.D. Student Memphis Hill!

CUAHSI is the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

The Pathfinder Fellowship program provides travel funds to graduate students in hydrology and related sciences to make an extended trip to enhance their research by adding a field site to conduct comparative research, collaborating with a research group, or working with researchers on adding an interdisciplinary dimension to a project.

Memphis will use the Pathfinder travel grant to core a lake in Rocky Mountain National Park this summer.
