IIHR provides unique opportunities for undergraduates to participate in education and research programs. These include:
- Kennedy Fellowship, carrying a $2,500 stipend, is awarded annually to a University of Iowa senior who exemplifies the diverse qualities and aptitude for success in advanced degree work in an area of the hydrosciences. The fellowship carries with it an obligation for the student to work with an IIHR senior staff member on a research project and to develop a written report on it at semester’s end.
- IIHR also employs a number of undergraduate students to assist with research projects during the academic year and summers.
