The Young Water Fellowship Program
aims to empower young leaders from low and middle income countries to implement projects to tackle water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH), water pollution and water scarcity issues, by offering them an intensive training program, seed funding grants for their projects, and mentoring support by senior level experts during one year.
This program will select 10 young community leaders capable of successfully designing and implementing sustainable and inclusive water projects that significantly improve living conditions in their communities, while contributing to the achievement of SDG #6 (water and sanitation for all). Applicants must be 18-30 years old at the time of the applications and come from a list of low and mid income countries. Specific conditions for application can be found on the YWF website

The Instrument Incubator Program (IIP) funds innovative technologies that lead directly to new Earth observing instruments, sensors, and systems in support of SMD’s ESD. The technologies and measurement concepts developed under the IIP may extend up through field demonstrations, with a longer-term aim for infusion into future ESD research and flight programs.
The goals of the IIP are to research, develop and, demonstrate new measurement technologies that enable new or greatly enhance Earth observation measurements and reduce the risk, cost, size, mass, and development time of Earth observing instruments. This program element requests proposals for technology development activities aimed specifically at: (1) development and demonstration of new innovative Earth Science remote sensing instruments; and (2) demonstration of new instrument concepts and/or measurements.
Notices of Intent are requested by May 31, 2016, and proposals are due July 11, 2016. Read More...
