Scholarships for Flood and Coastal Risk Management

The challenges of more frequent extreme weather and new flood risk responsibilities mean that there is a growing need for skilled water and environmental management professionals.

The Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Flood and Coastal Risk Management at Lancaster University provides flexible and accessible training focused on the practical application of technical skills and best practice techniques.  The course is CIWEM accredited and is designed to meet the needs of professionals looking for further specialist training in flood and coastal risk management.

We offer financial support towards the PgCert course fees, especially where the training will help individual recipients to bring benefits to communities through third sector or public sector organisations.

Since 2014, we have awarded eleven scholarships to flood risk managers at councils and rivers trusts across the UK.   You can find out more about why the recipients chose to study flood risk management and how JBA Trust has helped.


How to apply for the JBA Trust Scholarship

The application window for this academic year is now closed.  We hope to be able to offer the scholarships again next year for the PGCert course starting in 2023-24 so please visit this page again in Spring 2023 for details on how to apply.
