Graduate and undergraduate student paper competitors are required to submit a final paper; poster student competitors are not. Any student who submits a final paper will have his/her paper reviewed by the track chairs for consideration and publication in the Conference Proceedings.

WSP Student Design Competition

The WSP Student Design Competition competition aims to provide learning opportunities for undergraduate senior students in solving real-life infrastructure problems and developing practical yet innovative solutions prior to entering the industry. Currently, all undergraduate civil/environmental engineering programs are required to include a "capstone" design experience. Schools are strongly encouraged to participate in this exciting competition.

More information on the WSP Competition, and how to enter, will be coming soon!

EWRI Student Chapters

The Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI), via the Student Council is calling for applications from students and faculty members (that work in areas relevant to the EWRI mission) that want to form new EWRI student chapters across the US, or that want to support existing EWRI chapters.

This is a great opportunity for students and faculty to have financial support and focus on developing students’ professional skills while working on the development of local, regional and national networks with the environmental and water resources community.
