Special Scholarship Opportunity
Rotary International’s 2016-17 President John F. Germ made water and sanitation his priority as President. 23 million people now have safe water because of Rotary and by 2030 Rotary hopes to provide everyone with safe water, sanitation and hygiene.
Students in Haiti drink and wash up during recess with clean water provided by The Rotary Foundation.
To further this mission, the Rotary Foundation and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education are working together to tackle the world’s water and sanitation crisis. They are offering up to 10 scholarships for graduate study at UNESCO-IHE's Delft campus in the Netherlands. The partnership aims to increase the number of trained professionals who can devise, plan, and implement water and sanitation solutions in developing areas. The scholarships also are designed to promote long-term productive relationships between Rotarians and skilled water and sanitation professionals in their communities.
Scholars will receive a Master of Science degree in urban water and sanitation, water management, or water science and engineering. Graduates work with their Rotary club sponsors on a related project to benefit their local community.
The application deadline is June 15th. For more information and to apply, please contact the Rotary office.
