Scholarships, sponsorship and funding
If you are having difficulty obtaining financial support we strongly advise you to make early contact with local offices of the British Council for information about scholarships. The British Council is also a useful source of general information about studying and living in the UK.

In memory of his contribution to development, WEDC has set up a scholarship to pay the fees for one student per year to study for an MSc at WEDC in Water and Waste Engineering or in Water and Environmental Management.
