Apply for a Studentship Award to support your MSc studies

The British Hydrological Society, JBA Trust and the Environment Agency are delighted to announce that the MSc Studentship Award Scheme is now open for applications, for courses starting in Autumn 2022.

Hydrology is the science that underpins some of the biggest challenges we face across the globe. Water availability is key to the survival of individuals, communities and economies, whilst it can also devastate on the same scales. Changes in climate and population mean that these challenges are growing, making hydrological science more relevant than ever.

Graduates of MSc courses play a vital part in the future management of the water environment. Our Studentship Awards offer support to talented students wishing to complete an MSc course related to hydrology, water resources and catchment management and aim to encourage the development of academic expertise in hydrology.

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.

We welcome applications from students that are typically underrepresented within the Higher Education pathways. These could include (but are not limited to) students from ethnic minorities, those with a disability or from low-income backgrounds.

You can find out more about previous recipients of the awards and the application process here, and submit your application here.

The closing date for applications is 12:00 on Monday 25 July 2022.
