Since 2013, the Pure Water Access Project has run a 2-year fellowship program designed to give college students the opportunity work in the clean water nonprofit sector while also learning the basics about conducting impact assessment research. The over two-dozen fellows that have passed through the program worked for both for- and non-profit organization in the US, Nicaragua, Ghana, Peru, and El Salvador on projects ranging from describing the microbiology of household water sources to using surveys to characterize the impact of clean-water radio programming. They impacted thousands of individuals.
In 2019, the Pure Water Access Project will be launching a modified fellowship program aimed at providing direct support to student-faculty pairs studying clean water and its effects on public health. Please check back in Spring 2019 for more information on how to apply for this opportunity.
Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest thus far. We truly appreciate the support and enthusiasm!
