The River Steward Program

The River Steward Program comprises three courses integral to understanding rivers and water management.

  • River Leadership – An introduction to leadership in context to driving positive change for river basins.
  • River Resilience – Resilience is a new way of thinking. The constant disturbance regime that rivers are facing has created a need for resilience.
  • River Restoration – Study the processes that operate in river systems and the landforms which they create or have created.

Recipients will also receive an hour personal mentoring session with an instructor of their choice. Each instructor has their own unique skillset that will further enhance the scholarship experience of the students.
