The LIFT Scholarship Exchange Experience for Innovation & Technology Program (SEE IT) is an initiative spearheaded by WRF, 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

Applications are now closed. In January 2018, the sponsors awarded 28 staff members from 10 utilities with travel scholarships. Please visit LIFT SEE IT 2018 for more information. To see recipients from 2017, please visit LIFT SEE IT 2017.
