Call for Applications: UNESCO-Rotary Scholarships for Water and Sanitation Professionals

Deadline: 15 June 2017

Rotary and the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education are currently accepting applications for Scholarships for Water and Sanitation Professionals.

Rotary and the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education have teamed up to tackle the world’s water and sanitation crisis by increasing the number of trained professionals to devise, plan, and implement solutions in developing and emerging countries. Through this partnership, The Rotary Foundation will provide grants to Rotary clubs and districts to select and sponsor a limited number of students each year.

The Rotary Scholarships for Water and Sanitation Professionals have been designed to promote long-term productive relationships between Rotarians and highly skilled water and sanitation professionals in their communities. Rotary scholars will benefit from the support they receive through regular contact with sponsoring Rotarians from their home country and the opportunity to interact with Rotarians in the Netherlands. After graduating, scholars’ expertise will be put to work improving water and sanitation conditions in their own community with a project the scholar and sponsoring Rotarians will design and implement together.

Types of Scholarships

  • MSc in Urban Water and Sanitation
  • MSc in Water Management
  • MSc in Water Science and Engineering

Benefits

TRF awards scholarships of approximately €34,000, paid directly to UNESCO-IHE. Funding to cover additional costs (including international travel) related to participation in the academic program will be coordinated by UNESCO-IHE.

  • Scholars are selected in a competitive process, based on their ability to have a significant, positive impact on global water and sanitation issues during their career.
  • Successful applicants will have a strong academic background, significant and relevant professional experience, and demonstrated leadership in the community.
  • Scholar agrees to fulfill the requirements of funding coordinated by UNESCO-IHE.
