Some thanks from our sponsored members

Many hydrogeologists and others working in groundwater-related fields would like to join IAH and would benefit greatly from membership but are prevented by economic or practical reasons. To help such individuals, IAH operates a sponsored membership scheme, funded largely by the contributions of IAH members and chapters worldwide. Thank you so much!

At the end of 2008 we were sponsoring 193 people and by the end of 2013 this number had increased to 265. In other words, during a 5 year period an extra 72 people from around the world received your support.

To celebrate the increasing success of the scheme, here are photos and comments from some of our sponsored members, who have kindly agreed to waive their right to anonymity for this good cause. We hope their messages act both as a way of thanks and reassurance that your contributions are being put to good use. Please keep helping – the demand is constant. You can contribute to our sponsorship fund when you register or renew your membership, or via your national chapter.

How IAH sponsorship helps…

“My PhD research project has benefitted from reference to hydrological studies
published in the IAH monthly journals and their other information sources have
helped me structure my personal development plan.”

“Being a research scientist in hydrometeorology, I felt I needed proper understanding
of hydrogeology and groundwater processes. The knowledge acquired on these processes from the research papers published in the journal as well as personal discussions with the subject experts helped me a lot. This was possible only with the generosity of the sponsors. On behalf of all the sponsored members and on my behalf, I thank to all the sponsors for this noble cause.”

“Through this sponsorship I enjoy all the facilities (access to the journal, access to
free books offered by IAH and news about Conferences and research grants). I am
also in contact with other hydrogeologists in the world with whom I share work experiences.”

“Being a sponsored member of IAH has boosted my confidence and morale in the professional sphere of life. It also makes it possible for me to satisfy a professional requirement, as in my country professional organizations expect you to belong to a recognized association in your field of studies before you are offered employment.”
