Emerging Scholars Programs

 

“I learned to work on ‘being comfortable with being uncomfortable’ and how to assert myself in my field as a woman…When the [women] spoke about adversity and breaking barriers – many of which I've experienced – I was inspired to continue pursuing this field and performing above and beyond striving, to make an impact one step at a time.”

“The Emerging Water Quality Scholars program has provided many experiences that would have otherwise been inaccessible…It was a unique opportunity to be able to engage with some of the top industry professionals and gain a direct pipeline of communication to them.”

 “I was able to make new relationships with employers and gain potential job opportunities...Getting to know people’s stories was the best part. Knowing that they were just regular people… changing and helping our community."
