IWC announces successful Masters scholarships recipients
High number of quality applicants
“The selection process was extremely tough,” said IWC Senior Lecturer and Education Manager Dr Brian McIntosh. “We received very many high quality applications from all around the world demonstrating great depth of professional and volunteering experience, and we would have liked to have been able to award many more scholarships. If you have been unsuccessful this time around, I strongly encourage you to apply again next year.”
IWC thanks all the applicants and congratulates the recipients, who come from the USA, Bangladesh and Australia, and from diverse professional backgrounds including WASH, water utility management and consulting.
Nathan Cammerman was a recipient of an IWC Masters Scholarship in the first intake of MIWM students in 2008. This scholarship has helped Nathan to realise his dream of establishing IWRM Pty Ltd, a successful consultancy firm that focuses on the sustainable management of water resources.
“I searched for the right Masters program for over a decade,” Nathan said. “The IWC Masters with its balanced approach to the social, physical, environmental and economic aspects of water finally ticked all the boxes for me.
“And now, two years since I completed the program, IWC staff continue to provide direction, advice and access to networks. I am truly thankful for their visionary approach and support.”
Partial scholarships (AU$ 6,000) now available!
For those of you who missed out on a full-tuition scholarship, there is still good news:
To continue to support you in the current difficult economic climate, IWC is offering 50 partial-tuition scholarships (AU$6,000 each) for the first 50 candidates to apply for an IWC Integrated Water Management program (Masters, Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate) for 2013.
The scholarship is available to Australian and international students who do not receive any external full-tuition scholarship or full-tuition funding from other sources.
Each partial scholarship is valued at AU$6,000 for the whole Masters program, payable per semester towards tuition fees (directly to the enrolling university). For full-time students, this is equivalent to AU$2,000 off their tuition fees per semester ($1,000 per semester for part-time/distance students).
To benefit from this partial scholarship, you need to:
- Apply for the program www.watercentre.org/education/programs/apply (Masters, Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate)
- Receive a place in the program from either The University of Queensland or The University of Western Australia, depending on your chosen specialisation stream www.watercentre.org/education/programs/structure/specialisation-streams
- Be one of the first 50 students to enrol in the program (enrolments will open in December 2012)
There is no separate application form for this scholarship. Simply apply for the program www.watercentre.org/education/programs/practical-information/apply-now/apply!
