Introduction to the TU Delft Summer School Scholarship
Applications are now open for the TU Delft Summer School Scholarship 2024 for African Students and teachers. If you’re interested in learning about sustainable water planning and design, you might want to consider attending the Summer School Planning and Design with Water for Sustainability.
The course will provide a comprehensive overview of the water-related challenges faced by communities, and will provide participants with an opportunity to develop their own sustainable water solutions. The course will also cover topics such as water conservation, water management, and water resource management.
This annual event takes place every July at the Department of Urbanism, which is part of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the esteemed Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). The Faculty of Architecture is located in the charming, historic city of Delft, which can be found in The Netherlands. This educational program has been running successfully for eight years and counting.
To participate, you need to be enrolled in a higher education course. However, we also accept students who have graduated recently. Please explain your situation in your letter of motivation. The school is intended for students who have had at least 3 years of higher education in a discipline related to the built environment or urban development.
A planning, architectural or design background is indicated, but not necessary.

However, you must be willing to understand URBANISM.
We are looking for ENGAGED, enthusiastic, entrepreneurial, open-minded progressive students from all over the world who can help bring back ideas to their communities.
