QWRCIP Scholarships closing soon
Date: 25-Jul-2017

Are you an employee of a qldwater member organisation with fewer than 10,000 connections looking for a fantastic professional development opportunity?  You have until 31 July to apply….

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 made up of members of its Technical Reference Group.

QWRCIP seeks investment from corporate and other sources and the proceeds from the “vendor pitch” session on 6 September go directly to this initiative.  The first activity to be funded under the Program are these scholarships, with up to 5 available for 2017.

What the scholarships cover

Attendance in Brisbane for the week of 4 – 8 September to include:

  • 1-2 days with an SEQ utility, spending time with a technical specialist, learning about specific equipment or implementation of programs of interest.
  • 2 days at the qldwater Innovation Forum (6/7 September) comprising tours, presentations and regulator-targeted sessions.
  • Participation in the qldwater Technical Reference Group (8 September).

There are plenty of willing hosts with our SEQ members strongly supporting this initiative.  Applications for the scholarships close on 31 July.  The process is very simple – further details are available here.
