The International Desalination Association’s (IDA) Fellowship Award consists of a monetary award, funded through the IDA Foundation, as well as the opportunity to work on a specific project with the host agencies. Since the programme began in 2008, the IDA has awarded three fellowships and partnered with Singapore’s national water agency, PUB and the Saline Water Conversion Corporation in Saudi Arabia.
 

Patricia A Burke, secretary general of the IDA said: “The Fellowship Programme plays an important role in promoting education and fostering information exchange among industry professionals, two essential elements in the fulfillment of IDA’s mission. We are very pleased to have the support of the Water Corporation and Murdoch University, two of the most respected and prestigious organizations in Australia.”

The application deadline for the 2010 Fellowship Program is April
