Every year, ISWIM offers scholarships to bachelor, master and PhD students, or post docs up to five years after graduation working on WIM-related research projects. Participants must demonstrate a passion for WIM through either their studies or early professional life and show “substantial evidence” of their research. “Substantial evidence” could be an original contribution in the form of a journal or conference paper; a report; or a series of presentations that clearly defines the scope of the project, technical approach, and anticipated or final conclusion(s).

In 2021 ISWIM will fully sponsor the travel and registration expenses for recipients to present their work at the 3rd ISWIM Regional Seminar in Pretoria, South-Africa. Sponsorship from ISWIM will not exceed 2.000 Euro. Applicants should send their CV, two reference letters, and an abstract up to 1000 words with supporting “substantial evidence” of their work. Submissions should be emailed to Lily Poulikakos at lily.poulikakos@empa.ch. This year’s deadline is extended to March 31st and the award winners will be announced mid 2021.
