Each year NPSI provides summer scholarships enabling several students to gain supervised experience in various aspects of irrigation research.

Travel fellowships are also offered. These programs aim to provide experience, expand knowledge and encourage smart young people into careers in irrigation research.

Among them is Alison McCarthy, a NPSI Travel Fellowship award recipient and Cotton RDC post doctorate student at the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture, who reported to the Irrigation Australia Conference on her visit to the United States where she explored advances in her special area of interest, precision irrigation.
