A National Science Foundation grant will let dozens of U.S. and European graduate students attend a two-week water management course in the Netherlands.

The foundation is providing nearly $400,000 over three years to a partnership between The Water Institute of the Gulf and the University of New Orleans, the institute said in a news release.

The grant will support 13 students from the United States and up to 14 students from Europe each year .

Participants will get important training, connections with professionals and experimental and modeling skills, said Christopher Esposito, research scientist at the Water Institute.

“Water management needs — whether facing the challenge of too much water from flooding or needing to meet the demands of agriculture, industry, power generation, consumption and seafood production — continue to grow,” said Matthew Tarr, an analytic chemistry professor and vice president for research and economic development at UNO.
