Unpredictable floods, water scarcity and droughts, inadequate water supply and sanitation services, and degraded freshwater ecosystems threaten the lives of millions of people worldwide. Decision-makers are increasingly forced to make challenging choices on water development, allocation and management issues at local, regional and international levels, under conditions of increasing climate unpredictability and risk. The University of Oxford’s cross-disciplinary Water Science, Policy and Management master’s course equips the next generation of water professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to make a significant contribution to tackling the increasingly complex global challenge of sustainable water management.

In 2016-17, the Swarovski Foundation is supporting an exceptional student to take this unique course, enabling them to join Oxford’s growing international network of graduates addressing water issues worldwide.

The Swarovski Foundation was established in 2013 to pursue charitable goals to honour the philanthropic spirit of Daniel Swarovski, who founded the crystal business in 1895. Since then, five generations of the Swarovski family have reinforced the company’s commitment to philanthropy and charitable giving. The new Swarovski Foundation Scholarship further demonstrates the Foundation’s mission to aid, amongst other causes, charitable initiatives and organisations working to conserve natural resources.
