Research grants: The Groundwater Research Fund
provides funding for cutting-edge research projects that stimulate new
knowledge, information, programs, and products to advance groundwater
science and technology. In turn, the research should also enhance the
future effectiveness of the ground water professions and maximize
ground water’s benefit to society. The foundation has specific interest
in research that focuses on groundwater sustainability and public
concerns about ground water quality.

Developing nations grants: The Developing Nations
Fund provides small assistance grants to benefit the quality of life for
people without access to plentiful potable ground water. Funds can be
used for a ground water supply grant or a water well system-related
education and training program. The dollar-for-dollar matching grants
are for qualified projects in a low-income, developing, or Third World
nation as defined by the World Bank or some other equivalent
international body, such as the United Nations. Applicants for
ground water supply projects should have a history of not less than three
years of demonstrated success in projects for potable ground water
drinking supply.
