IWC announces Water Leader Scholarships recipients
“The selection process was very, very tough,” said IWC Senior Lecturer Brian McIntosh. “We received many high quality applications from all around the world, and we would have liked to have been able to award many more scholarships.”
IWC congratulates the recipients, who come from Bangladesh, New Zealand, Ireland, Afghanistan and Australia, and from diverse professional backgrounds such as agriculture, social sciences and natural resource management.
Nathan Cammerman was a recipient of a partial-tuition IWC Water Leader 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.”
To continue to support water leaders of the future in the current difficult financial climate, the IWC is offering further partial-tuition scholarships (AU$5,000 each) for the first 50 applicants to apply for the Master of Integrated Water Management for 2012.
