Interested in Becoming a Water Institute Affiliated Student?

Being a Water Institute affiliated student is a valuable and exciting experience that presents numerous opportunities for growth.

Students affiliated with the Water Institute are registered students at UNC and have active interest in water-health-environment linkages through their own research. Typically, Water Institute students work in water, sanitation, or hygiene research, with faculty advisors affiliated with The Institute. We encourage Water Institute affiliated students to pursue an interdisciplinary outlook on their work, maintain high academic standards and actively network among their fellow Water Institute affiliates. As a Water Institute student affiliate, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Collaborate with other students, share your research ideas and receive feedback in a safe environment.
  • Contribute to ongoing Water Institute research, thereby constantly expanding the comprehensiveness of your own research.
  • Volunteer and receive complimentary registration at Water Institute hosted conferences, which provide excellent learning and networking opportunities with hundreds of professionals from around the world.
