British Hydrological Society, JBA Trust and Environment Agency Studentship Award Scheme

Specialist skills are needed to manage the water environment. We therefore work closely with the British Hydrological Society and the Environment Agency to support students working towards relevant MSc qualifications who will go on to play a vital part in the future management of the water environment.

The Studentship Award Scheme supports talented MSc students wishing to pursue development of their academic experience and qualifications in hydrology and catchment management.

The studentships will be awarded to a small number of students to help towards Master’s degree tuition costs at UK Higher Education Institutions. Awards are anticipated to be between £2,000 and £2,500 depending on the number and quality of applicants.
