Since 2007, AMTA has worked in partnership with several recognized organizations in distributing almost $500,000 in Fellowships that support talented university students researching membrane innovations and applications for water treatment. In 2018, AMTA expanded on this commitment by establishing the $10,000 Ian C. Watson Fellowship for Membrane Advancement in honor of his long and distinguished career dedicated to the beneficial application of membrane technology.
Watson is a modern pioneer of membrane processes and proudly served as AMTA’s first Executive Director. AMTA is proud to acknowledge his vital and positive influence on both novice and seasoned membrane practitioners with this namesake Fellowship. More information can be found at www.amtaorg.com.
