Water Science Bursaries

The Royal Society of Chemistry Water Science Forum offers a limited number of bursaries each year to post graduate students or professional water scientists. The Water Science bursaries can be used for research projects. In order to provide maximum benefit to as many members as possible, the bursary is restricted to one successful application per member.

Applicants have to be members of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and preferably members of the Water Science Forum. The funds are available to assist members at any stage of their career. MSc students or students on other career development routes including those who have no formal higher qualifications (degree, HND) can apply and this award may also be particularly relevant to members aiming to achieve Registered Science Technician (RSciTech) or Registered Scientist (RSci) status.

The Water Science Bursary is awarded to researchers engaged in projects that involve application of chemical sciences in the management of the water cycle, and the impact these activities have on the environment. Awards of up to £2,000 per year are available in relation to the following activities:

  • Continuing professional development research analysis activities for RSciTech or RSci awards
  • MSc thesis projects
  • Short sabbatical periods to complete relevant research
  • Assistance in Water Science research projects  

Please note that activities are not restricted to the examples above, so please feel able to submit an application for an alternative activity for consideration. Please note though, that any activity needs to contain a high proportion of water related chemical science which contributes to water sustainability (environment, economic, social) and have an identifiable practical application.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • The applicant needs to clearly identify how their work is likely to further the Water Science Forum’s aims and objectives.
  • MSc students, or students on other career development routes, including those who have no formal higher qualifications (e.g. degree or HND), and those wishing to obtain RSciTech or RSci qualifications, are encouraged to apply.
  • Activities need to contain a high proportion of water related chemical science which contributes to water sustainability (environment, economic, social).
