This scholarship was made possible by the generous gift from Shlomo and Yael Neuman and former members of Shlomo's research group, colleagues and friends. This scholarship is for fulltime graduate students pursuing MS and or PhD with majors in Hydrology.
History: The Shlomo and Yael Neuman Hydrology Scholarshp was established in Spring 2015 by a generous cash gift from Shlomo and Yael Neuman, former members of Shlomo's research group, colleagues, and friends. Shlomo Peter Neuman is Regents professor of Hydrology and Water Resources at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and he is clearly one of the scientists who changed the face of hydrogeology during the 20th century. Starting with his early work on well hydraulics, he has been continuously exploring new challenges and developed theoretical and numerical tools that provided practical answers to a broad range of problems including aquifer characterization, inverse modeling, fractured media, stochastic method, or multiscale analysis. His influence on the profession can be directly measured today by the high number of his former students or collaborators who are now leading some of the most active hydrogeological research groups in the world.
