Apply now: Scholarships for Master's Studies in “Sustainable Water Management”

"One of the major challenges of the future is to ensure the supply of clean water to the world population. Population growth, water pollution and the increasing water consumption per capita have a strong impact on water quality. In addition, expansive climate changes and change in land use influence global and regional water cycles and thus question the medium and long-term availability of water."

In view of this background, the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) specifically promotes research projects to develop, adapt and internationally disseminate technologies and strategies for the sustainable management of the resource "Water". Of particular interest in this context are the thematic fields of Water and Energy, Water and Health, Water and Nutrition, Water and Environment, as well as Water in Urban Areas.

The programme "Study Scholarships and Research Grants for Foreigners" offers highly-qualified students from specific countries the opportunity to study in selected English-language master degree programmes at German universities in the thematic fields of sustainable water management. Studies are to be carried out in Germany.

Who can apply?

Applications are open to excellently qualified bachelor graduates from Brazil, Chile, Iran, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Namibia, Peru, South Africa and Vietnam who graduated in disciplines with relevance to sustainable water management no longer than six years ago.

Application deadline is 31 October 2017

Hola Bettina
Mi nombre es Roberto La Rosa, colaboro con la institución Naturaleza y Cultura Internacional en Perú en el tema de áreas naturales protegidas y su contribución al abastecimiento de agua limpia, sobre todo cuando estas áreas están cerca a ciudades importantes. Me gustaría aplicar a una beca de este tipo, pero no sé inglés. Cabe la posibilidad de tener capacitación en la temática del agua auspiciado por ustedes en países de habla hispana? Danke.
