DUWC Awards 2016 Graduate Student Research Grants

The Duke University Wetland Center is pleased to announce the Center's 2016 Graduate Student Research Grant Awards. Two Ph.D. students at the Nicholas School of the Environment have been awarded funds that will support research focused on a topic in wetland science and management leading towards a graduate degree. The 2016 awardees are:



Joseph Morton, for the proposal Can birds indirectly mitigate marsh die-off by regulating parasite prevalence in a keystone grazer?

Elizabeth Schrack, for the proposal Harnessing positive interactions to enhance restoration of coastal wetlands

This is the second year for the Duke University Wetland Center Graduate Student Research Grant Program, which will award annual grants of up to $5,000 to Nicholas School graduate students (Master's and Ph.D.) through a competitive application and review process. The program contributes to the Center's goal of increasing sound scientific knowledge leading to sustainable wetland functions and services locally, nationally, and globally.
