Posted by Tim on December 6, 2022 in Honors Experiences

The New York Water Environment Association (NYWEA) presents the Introducing Future Leaders to Opportunities in Water (In­ FLOW) program for 2023. The program’s aim is to enhance diversity and inclusion in the water work force by engaging scholars from under­ represented demographics in NYWEA programs and conferences to increase their interest in and awareness of opportunities of work in the water sector, to increase probabilities for employment, and to aid long­ term success in the sector. This scholarship program is modeled after the Water Environment Federation (WEF)’s InFLOW Program, which consists of two tracks: STEMPath and CareerTech.

Participation in the InFLOW program will include:
• Introduction to water sector careers;
• An assigned mentor to guide each scholar through the program; • Opportunities to network with water professionals across New York state;
• Complimentary registration for the NYWEA 95th Annual Con­ference at the NYC Marriott Marquis in February or the Spring Technical Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY, in June;
• Site visit to a water resource recovery facility;
• Complimentary NYWEA and WEF student membership for 1 year; and
•Stipend for participation in the program.

This program is an excellent opportunity for students to meet potential employers, network with water/wastewater professionals across the state, learn about NYWEA student scholarship opportunities and ex­ plore different career paths within the water sector.


STEMPath invites promising college and university students from his­ torically underrepresented groups in environmental programs to attend New York’s largest water quality conference, the NYWEA Annual Meet­ ing in New York City each February.


CareerTech partners with community­based organizations to expose scholars in job readiness programs to the variety of rewarding career possibilities in water quality.

If you know students that would be a good fit for the STEMPath program and would be interested in learning more about careers in the Water/ Wastewater sector or the science of water quality, please email info@ with their contact information for the February 2023 InFLOW Program!

NYWEA is a nonprofit, educational organization of over 2,500 water quality professionals representing diverse specialties, all working to enhance water quality and protect water resources. Learn more at
