Application Period Opens for 2016 Singapore International Water Week Scholarship Program

The Water Environment Federation (WEF), the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), and the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF)—in partnership with Singapore’s national water agency PUB—invite U.S. utility leaders to apply for the 2016 Singapore International Water Week Scholarship.

The scholarship will help offset costs for a U.S. utility delegation to the 2016 Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), a biennial event that showcases best practices, innovative technologies, and business opportunities in the global water sector.

Scheduled for July 10-14, SIWW 2016 will bring together international water leaders and practitioners to share and co-create innovative solutions that reinforce global integration of sustainable water management strategies with urban planning processes.

Through a collaborative sponsorship of the scholarship and utility delegation, the organizations are seeking to help break down international barriers, assist with the acceleration of technology transfer, and create an understanding of innovative policy options to further integrate resource recovery across the water sector. Scholarship recipients will be encouraged to write papers for publication and make presentations about their SIWW experiences.

High-level managers, general managers, and CEOs of U.S. water and wastewater utilities are encouraged to apply. Scholarship applicants must be a WEF or NACWA member and/or work for an agency that is a WERF subscriber. Applications will be accepted through February 5, 2016. The recipients will be notified and announced in March 2016.
