Project Description: 

Many neighborhoods in central Phoenix have slowly been reducing their use of non-potable SRP water that is delivered directly to their property. One of the results of that trend is a reduction in the amount of lush landscaping that served to keep those neighborhoods cooler in the summer months. The City of Phoenix is now looking at reviving direct delivery to some City-owned property in order to help combat the heat island effect. This is an undergraduate research fellowship available for spring 2020. The selected fellow will develop an original research project based on these topics as they and their fellowship supervisor identify as relevant.

Preferred Majors: Open to all majors.
Compensation: There is a stipend associated with this fellowship in the amount of $4,500.
Hours Per Week: The research fellow will work approximately 10 hours per week, actual hours to be determined by the fellowship supervisor and the fellow.

The deadline to apply is December 4, 2019.
