The International Centre of Excellence in Water Resources Management (ICE WaRM) offers a scholarship programme to attract high quality international students to education and training in water resources management, delivered by ICE WaRM partner institutions.
The ICE WaRM scholarship programme aims to:
- provide high calibre students with the opportunity to study with ICE WaRM partners to further their knowledge;
- provide students with the opportunity to participate in research and advance their scientific knowledge in water resources management;
- encourage the exchange of ideas on best practice within water-related fields;
- provide students with the opportunity to participate in presentations, conferences, seminars and forums on contemporary issues in water resources management;
- provide the opportunity for students from organisations and countries currently facing major water issues to participate in programmes which they may not be able to fund; and
- demonstrate a commitment to cultural change and diversity and the international sharing of knowledge and skills related to water resources management.
All persons with a water related background and/or an interest in further study in water resources management are encouraged to apply. Based on the scholarship guidelines (as of 2009), to be eligible scholarship candidates must:
- satisfy Australian Government Visa requirements for international student entry to Australia;
- not hold a current Australian Government scholarship;
- meet or exceed the university’s academic requirements (qualify for the programme to which you wish to apply) for the programme which is to be considered for a scholarship;
- be applying to commence a new programme of study and not be seeking support for a programme already commenced in Australia; and
- be able to commence study in the semester and year for which the scholarship is offered.
A number of scholarships may be limited to citizens of certain countries or to particular fields of study.
