The Scholarship Exchange Experience for Innovation & Technology Program (SEE IT) is an initiative spearheaded by The Water Research Foundation (WRF), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), and the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (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.
