Travel Scholarship Attendees Bring Important Component to Conference

The WaTER Center will be bringing 18 travel scholarship recipients to Norman, OK to participate in the 2017 OU International WaTER Conference Sept.18-20. They have been notified and are working on visa applications and other travel documents now.

Conference participants enjoy opportunities to share information and time

This year's scholarship awardees are coming from 12 different nations - Colombia, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Liberia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, South Africa, and Thailand. They will be giving presentations on everything from grey water treatment to the effects of climate change on water resources. They come from universities, NGOs, and research institutes as well as entrepreneurs. Most of all, however, they bring with them a unique set of experiences from all corners of the world.

The participation of international practitioners and researchers is a very important component of our Conference. We value the exchange of information and culture that this component offers, and so we are grateful for the individual and corporate sponsors who have made these scholarships possible. We look forward to welcoming all our guests – from near and far away!

  1. I am looking forward to participating in this years WaTER Conference. Coming from an African base, I strongly support this initiative by OU WaTER Centre to bring together delegates from the developing world to share experience and best practice within broader WASH sector.
