About the Pat Gober Water Prize:
The Pat Gober Water Prize is a student research proposal competition, awarded annually, by the ASU School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning.
The award, established in 2019, recognizes the outstanding leadership, mentoring, and scholarly contributions of Professor Gober within ASU's Department of Geography and (later) the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, the Decision Center for a Desert City, and the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability.
Qualified submissions will be in the area of water-related research broadly defined. This includes, but is not limited to, water policy, climate research, geomorphology, or social science. Whatever the field, it is critical that water be in the foreground of the work.
Funds may be used to support travel, purchase of data, surveys, and expendable field supplies related to the proposed research.
