In 2017, an opportunity arose to establish a charitable venture aimed at helping address urban water and sewerage challenges facing small and remote communities. The Queensland Water Regional Communities Innovations Program (QWRCIP) is administered under the auspices of qldwater with a steering committee comprising members of its Technical Reference Group.
In 2019, up to four QWRCIP scholarships will be available to attend activities around qldwater’s Annual Forum (September) at Logan City. The week-long program will include:
Out of pocket costs (travel, meals, accommodation, event registrations) will be included. Salary recovery, and any necessary insurances are not.
Reimbursement of approved costs will be organised on a case by case basis.
Employees of qldwater full member organisations with 10,000 or fewer connections.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org by 29 May 2020 (sooner the better) with the following details completed:
qldwater will contact applicants who meet the criteria and gather further information to present to the Technical Reference Group or Partner Steering Committee for consideration. This must include:
The successful applicants will be made an offer of a scholarship, with a letter outlining agreed terms.
