Introducing Future Leaders to Opportunities in Water.

The InFLOW initiative is a scholarship program which strives to identify promising students from underserved minority groups who are interested in professional careers in the water industry. InFLOW invites students from Illinois colleges and universities to experience IWPC with the following goals:

  • Attend technical sessions and visiting conference exhibitors; 
  • Participate in social and young professional events;
  • Network with professionals involved in various areas of the water industry;
  • Solidify interest in working in the water sector

Each InFLOW participant will be provided with a 3-day agenda that is specifically designed to provide students with a well-rounded experience at IWPC!  We do ask that participants attend an on-line orientation prior to the conference and participate in a post event conference call and survey. Your input as to how to improve the experience for future participants is essential as we continue to make InFLOW a successful program.
