Eligibility and application instructions

Applicants for this workshop must hold a faculty position and teach hydrogeology at a two- or four-year college or university. We welcomed applications from all academic ranks. The workshop was limited to 70 participants, and the final list of participants was established with the goal of assembling a group representing a wide range of experiences, educational environments, and specialties.


On-site costs. The National Science Foundation provided funding for the operational costs of the workshop plus room, board, and workshop materials for the participants. To be supported by these funds, a participant must be either a US citizen, a permanent resident, or in the employ of a US institution. If you don't meet these requirements and are interested in participating in this workshop at your own expense, please contact the workshop conveners.

Travel. All participants or their home institutions must provide transportation to and from the workshop. The workshop will be held at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln in Lincoln, Nebraska. Participants must make their own way to the University of Nebraska in time for the first workshop event at 7 pm on Saturday, July 23. The workshop will be over in time for participants to take late afternoon flights out of Lincoln. Lincoln Airport is just off Interstate 80 at exit 399, only 3 miles from campus, and participants have the choice of renting a car or taking a cab. Lincoln Airport is served by American, Northwest, and United Airlines.

We will be able to offer small travel stipends to participants from institutions unable to cover travel costs.


Workshop sessions took place on the campus of the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Workshop participants will be housed in single rooms in the dormitories and will eat meals on campus.
