Connecting Historically Underrepresented Students to the Water Sector
The STEMpath Track of WEF InFLOW includes student scholars from universities and colleges who are currently pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in a STEM field. Through WEF InFLOW, these students are first introduced to the water sector at WEFTEC, where they participate in activities with other students and young professionals, as well as specially curated events to help scholars build their network within the water community. After WEFTEC, the scholars will be invited to additional opportunities within WEF including internships, scholarships, and involvement with other WEF Student & Young Professional programming.
Who is involved?
WEF works with universities and colleges throughout the United States to obtain student scholars. Program participants include students ranging from sophomore year to Ph.D candidates, with different STEM concentrations and a varying range of knowledge about the water industry.
Past Participating Schools
The application for Universities to participate in STEMpath 2021 is now open! Application closes April 30th.
"Going to WEFTEC really broadened my interest and passion in water, I didn’t realize how many opportunities and positions are available, since I was really just basing my knowledge of water off of what we were being taught in the classroom.”
