2015 World Plumbing Council Scholarship Program Offers Up to $10,000 per Scholarship

The World Plumbing Council (WPC) Chairman, Mr. Sudhakaran Nair has officially launched the WPC Education and Training Scholarship Program for 2015.

This is the second year that the two scholarship opportunities will be offered, one for applicants from Developed countries and another for Developing or Least Developed countries. The introduction of two scholarships presents more opportunities for those applying and takes into account the particular circumstances of candidates.

All members of the plumbing industry are invited to apply for these industry scholarship programs. Each of the scholarships provides up to US$10,000 in funding to cover expenses for the duration of the program.

The scholarships are intended to provide for an educational exchange between countries focusing on plumbing industry training, while at the same time exposing the participants to new technologies and innovations in training systems. They also provide an opportunity to increase awareness of the contribution that plumbing has made to global health and the environment. Participants have an opportunity to gain knowledge of the industry, technology, training and systems which can be applied to improve standards in their home countries.

The program also enables participants to experience the culture, language and work practices of other countries and provides a platform for networking and relationship building.

Mr. Sudhakaran Nair, Chair of the WPC said “These scholarships deliver life changing opportunities for applicants to gain invaluable skills and knowledge of plumbing practices around the world.”

Applicants are encouraged to focus on the following areas during their scholarship program;
• Identification of emerging vocational training needs and trends
• Plumbing training & education to address the environment and sustainability issues
• The value of water efficiency to the community and the plumbing industry
• How does plumbing training or lack of training affect public health in a country or region?
Applications close on the 31st August 2015 and the WPC would like to encourage candidates from all areas of the Plumbing Industry worldwide to apply.
To apply for a scholarship, an application form can be downloaded from the WPC website - http://worldplumbing.org/scholarship.
