USDA grant to help WSU doctoral students
By the Herald staff
A $258,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will help Washington State University support three doctoral students focusing on sustainable development and natural resource management.
The National Needs Fellowship grant was given to 12 universities for 2008.
Professors in soil science, biological systems engineering and economics are seeking candidates for the multi-disciplinary program lasting three to four years.
The fellowship includes an internship at the University of Bologna in Italy during the second year. Two engineering students have been accepted for fall 2009 and one more spot is available for spring 2010.
