The Rotary Foundation and UNESCO's Institute for Water Education are working together
to tackle the world’s water and sanitation crisis and 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 this June 15. For more information, review the application toolkit and scholarship terms and
