Rotary and the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education have partnered to address the world’s water and sanitation issue by expanding the number of trained professionals in poor and rising nations who can create, plan, and execute solutions. The Rotary Foundation will provide funding to Rotary clubs and districts to select and sponsor a limited number of students for the Masters Scholarships for Water and Sanitation each year as part of this cooperation.
Rotary scholars will benefit from the assistance they receive from sponsored Rotarians in their home country, as well as the chance to meet with Rotarians in the Netherlands. After graduation, the scholars’ skills will be put to use in their home community to improve water and sanitation conditions through a project that the scholar and sponsoring Rotarians will plan and implement together.
Furthermore, Rotary Foundation graduates are connected to a global network of fellow Rotary scholarship recipients and Rotarians. Scholars can stay linked to Rotary’s global network and resources by joining a local Rotary club and joining the alumni association.
About the Scholarship:
The activity of the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education began in 1957, when a postgraduate diploma course in hydraulic engineering was first given to practical professionals from developing nations. IHE Delft has grown into one of the world’s largest graduate water education institutions.
HE Delft offers a wide range of water-related educational courses. The Institute also offers a variety of short and online courses suited to individual needs in addition to the MSc and PhD programs.
With a focus on teaching and research, the IHE Delft laboratory is an internal service unit that supports the Institute’s educational, research, and capacity-building operations. IHE Delft enables those who are already working in the field of water or who want to learn more about it advance their careers by allowing them to increase or improve their knowledge. Because the water sector increasingly benefits from a diverse set of talents and backgrounds, the Institute also accepts students who want to change careers, as long as they meet the eligibility conditions. Our institute, IHE Delft, is located in Delft, one of the Netherlands’ student cities. Because finding student housing in student cities in the Netherlands is becoming increasingly difficult, IHE Delft has secured student housing for participants in our IHE Delft programs whenever possible.
In various Delft hostels, there are around 350 completely furnished units available, with bedding sets, internet, and television. DUWO, the Delft student housing corporation, is in charge of room availability, allocation, and maintenance. The majority of the rooms are single rooms with communal bathroom and kitchen amenities. The library at IHE Delft has about 25,000 titles and is connected to a global network of libraries via the internet. The IHE campus sits in the heart of Delft. The complex, which consists of three interconnected buildings, spans 14,000 square meters and extends from the new building’s main entrance on Westvest 7 to historic structures along one of Delft’s important canals. From October to April, IHE Delft provides free facilities for regular participation in a variety of sports, including indoor soccer, basketball, volleyball, and badminton. Coaches for these sports are volunteers from the faculty and students. IHE Delft wants to offer a few sporting competitions for students each year. The ‘Foreign Education Sports Day,’ a major yearly event in which teams from various international education institutes participate, is one of the most important annual events. During the academic year 1988/89, the foundations for a Student Association were laid, with all IHE Delft course participants as members. The following are the goals of the IHE Delft Student Association Board:
To represent the Institute’s MSc students in all IHE Delft-related matters; and to discuss thoughts and ideas with the IHE Delft management on course matters and student welfare. This Association is open to all IHE Delft students who are enrolled in courses lasting at least six months. All members have the opportunity to vote for their representatives and participate in all Association events. Water sector capacity development – for water sector ministries and departments, municipalities, water boards and water utilities, universities, training and research institutes, industries, non-governmental and private sector organizations, and IHE Delft provides education, training, and scientific research specifically for professionals working in the water and environment sectors. IHE contributes directly to target 6.a (capacity building) and indirectly to all other SDG 6 targets by covering drinking water and sanitation (targets 6.1 and 6.2), water quality (6.3), integrated water resources management and water governance (6.3, 6.4), and environmental management (targets 6.1 and 6.2). (6.5).
