[Master Degree] Rotary Scholarship at UNESCO/IHE Delft Institute, Netherlands

Rotary is an international organization of business, professional, and community leaders who provide humanitarian service and help to build goodwill and peace in the world. In 34,000-plus Rotary clubs, 1.2 million members volunteer their expertise, time, and funds to support local and international service projects.  

The strategic partnership between The Rotary Foundation (TRF) and IHE Delft Institute for Water Education aims to tackle the world’s water and sanitation crisis by increasing the number of trained professionals to devise, plan, and implement solutions in developing and emerging countries.

Through this partnership, a limited number of scholarships are awarded annually for graduate students at IHE Delft Institute for Water Education’s campus in the Netherlands. These scholarships are designed to promote long-term productive relationships between Rotarians and highly skilled water and sanitation professionals in their communities.

Rotarians interview and select from local candidates who have already been admitted to one of IHE Delft Institute for Water Education’s eligible 18-month Master of Science degree programs.

Funding of future Rotary scholarships
Rotary Clubs & Districts, as well as other interested donors, can contribute to the funding of future IHE Delft students through Rotary’s Global Grant setup. This setup matches contributions from Rotary Clubs & Districts with funds from The Rotary Foundation World Fund (50% for club contributions, 100% for district contributions). The total cost of the full 18-month programme is around $50,000 per student and can be made up of contributions from different sources. This includes flexible opportunities for individual donors and partners to contribute to the funding of Rotary - IHE Delft scholarships.
The aim of the partnership is to sponsor at least fourteen IHE Delft students per year
