The objective of the Channabasappa Memorial Scholarship is to encourage engineers and scientists to further their education in subjects related to desalination and water re-use. The Scholarship provides financial assistance to undergraduate students who have been accepted into a graduate program of doctoral studies and who intend to pursue a desalination and water reuse related research thesis.
The total maximum grant per student is up to $10,000 USD. The award is paid in two equal installments: the first upon notification that the recipient has won, and the second after IDA has received a mid-term progress report from the student’s academic advisor.
The individual selected for scholarship must have other sources of funds to supplement this grant that will allow the student to complete graduate degree requirements.
