A key component of IWSN is the training of future professionals in water management for sustainability and security. We believe that offering studentships and prizes at all levels will both encourage and support the brightest young minds to devote themselves to this critical area of work. This support includes: PhD, MSc and MPhil scholarships, funding for Post-Doctoral Research Associates, Student Prizes for the best undergraduate dissertations covering water issues, and funding students to undertake research overseas. This booklet introduces these students and the research they have undertaken.
