Future Rivers is a National Science Foundation Research Traineeship that prepares University of Washington graduate students to be fluent in 21st century data science approaches. Students will develop new technical skills, be a part of innovative scientific research, improve their communication skills, increase their cultural awareness, and much more.

Meet Our Community

Each year we welcome a new, diverse cohort of University of Washington graduate students and faculty to the program. Together with our partners, our team brings a wide-range of multidisciplinary experience and a passion for transforming freshwater science.

Future Rivers + EarthLab

As an EarthLab initiative, students in the program will learn to work in applied ways within career fields outside of academia to create a solid foundation that connects academic, government, industry, and community partners.
