EWRI Chapters foster and promote local activities in the environmental and water resources areas through the ASCE network. 10% of EWRI non-student members participate in EWRI committees and activities, EWRI Chapters provide an important link to regional and local professionals. EWRI Chapters and technical groups can also provide a valuable forum for regional technical issues relating to public policy.

Work with students in your university and make a difference
The Student Council of EWRI is calling for applications from students and faculty members (who work in areas relevant to the EWRI mission) that want to form new EWRI student chapters across US, or that want to support existing EWRI chapters.
This is a great opportunity for students and faculty to receive 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.
Students interested in applying to the student chapter funding need to be members of EWRI. EWRI offers student competitions, career planning sessions, and other opportunities for growth. Full-time students can jump-start their careers with EWRI at no cost. Students must submit official proof of full-time student status from their educational institution. Student Membership: $0

Proposed Budget and Budget Description Example for New Chapters (link)
What is the maximum amount our group can request?
The selected new student chapter will be awarded up to $1500 and the existing chapter will be awarded up to $750 for the following academic year.
Can we form an undergraduate chapter?
Yes, you can if your institute does not have an ASCE-Undergraduate chapter. If you already have an ASCE-undergraduate chapter, you can apply for a EWRI-graduate student chapter. Undergraduate students can attend the graduate chapters' events and become a member. If you need help to reach out to graduate students at your institute, please let us know, we will be happy to connect you.
