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. 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. Students eligible for this scholarship must be provisionally admitted to one of the following degree programs at UNESCO-IHE: MSc in Urban Water and Sanitation; MSc in Water Management; MSc in Water Science and Engineering. Students must also live or work near a Rotary club.
Rotary World Peace Fellows
Rotary Peace Fellowships are provided by The Rotary Foundation to fund either masters degree or professional development certificate study at one of the six Rotary Peace Centres in prestigious universities in the UK, USA, Japan, Australia and Sweden.
