The LIFT SEE IT program is now accepting applications for 2018 travel scholarships. Applications are due by 5:00 pm ET on Friday, December 15, 2017. To apply, download the Program Instructions and Application Form.

The LIFT Scholarship Exchange Experience for Innovation & Technology Program (SEE IT) is an initiative spearheaded by WE&RF, WEF, and NACWA to provide scholarships for utility personnel to visit other utilities with innovations of interest and to share experiences with their peers. Innovations may include new technologies and processes, but also novel approaches to service, operations, and finance.

LIFT SEE IT provides hands-on interaction with innovative technologies and approaches with representatives that are implementing them to provide program participants with the needed perspective and information to accelerate adoption at their own facilities. LIFT SEE IT is a tool and resource supporting the transformation of water resource recovery facilities into utilities of the future

In January 2017, the sponsors awarded 32 staff members from 11 utilities  with travel scholarships. Please visit the LIFT SEE IT 2017 page for more information,

If you have questions about a technology that you would like the recipient to ask as part of their 2018 visit, please contact the recipient. Their names will be posted on this web page once the 2018 awardees are announced.
