JBA Trust supports the British Hydrological Society MSc award scheme in 2011


The Natural Environment Research Council ceased the funding of studentships for the study for a Masters degrees in the hydrological sciences in 2011 after over 30 years of support that has benefitted several generations of professionals.

As a result it has inevitably been more difficult for some prospective students to commit to some MSc courses related  to hydrology and catchment management. Yet graduates of MSc courses play a vital part in the future management of the water environment in the UK or abroad.

The British Hydrological Society recognised the gap left by the loss of funding and created an award scheme to support potential MSc students wishing to pursue development of their academic experience and qualifications.

The JBA Trust has been delighted to support the British Hydrological Society MSc funding award scheme for 2011, enabling additional students to receive awards, and enhancing the funding for all of those students receiving support from the scheme.

The British Hydrological Society said

“By supporting the scheme, JBA Trust is investing in the future of British hydrology at a time when some other sources of funding for students and courses are disappearing.“
