The Colorado Water Center Student Fellowship at Colorado State University aims to elevate and serve groups that have been historically excluded and underserved in the water sector. Each cohort of CoWC Student Fellows partners with CSU faculty, staff, and community members to explore topics in water sustainability environmental justice, and equity. The Fellows work with community members to support projects that benefit the environment and improve livelihoods. The CoWC Student Fellowship provides a platform for previously excluded voices in conversations and decision-making around water. Fellows receive a $1000 stipend per academic year.
