Your chance to be a leader in the water industry

Clearwater and the International WaterCentre (IWC) are partnering to offer scholarships for emerging water leaders from greater metro Melbourne to participate in the next intake of the IWC Water Leadership Program.

This award-winning professional development program helps emerging leaders develop the abilities they need to influence, drive change and advance integrated water management projects.

Designed for emerging water leaders at the project-to-middle management level, this 10 month program is customised for the water sector through sound research and collaboration with experienced industry practitioners and will assist organisations to deliver Water for Victoria.

Clearwater is providing two scholarships* for applicants in greater metro Melbourne -

  • One (1) Clearwater Local Government Water Leader Scholarship (full scholarship valued at $9500)
  • One (1) Clearwater Melbourne Water Leader Partial Scholarship valued at ($5750)

*Scholars or employers will be required to provide a small commitment contribution to cost of tuition and travel.

Applications close 17 September 2023.

This highly valued course as reviewed by Jamilla Hull, one of our 2022 scholarship recipients:

"If you are serious about your leadership journey in the water industry, then this course is for you!  This course provides the opportunity to take a deep dive into a wide range of leadership topics.I don’t believe that you need to be a people leader for this course to be of benefit. In fact, anyone who is working as part of a team or is simply interacting with others in their role will get something out of this course. I predict that this course is likely to continue to pay dividends into the future of my career and leadership journey."
