Kee Toebes Scholarship 2017

In 2016, with generous contributions from Prof David Maidment, Hussein M. Alharthy Centennial Chair at the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Texas at Austin, USA, and Mr. Justin Toebes, son of Dr. Kees Toebes, Founder-President of New Zealand Hydrological Society, we established the Kees Toebes scholarship to support NZ students attend speciality hydrological courses. This is an effort to upskill society's student members and help them build a professional network.
