The ISAWWA Safe Water Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to students pursuing degrees or certifications related to the water industry. Our goal is to encourage more people to consider career paths in the water industry, which is critical to preserving public health and our most important natural resource – clean, safe drinking water. This year we distributed $3,500 in scholarships between four very deserving winners.
Applicants must be enrolled in or accepted into a water-related secondary, continuing education, or enrichment program for the 2014-2015 academic year (including summer term 2014) by the application deadline of January 31, 2014. Secondary education programs include water operator training programs as well as water-related technical school, community college, four-year college, masters, and doctoral programs. Examples of water-related fields of study include civil or environmental engineering, environmental science and policy, chemistry, biology, or hydrology.
ISAWWA is hosting a webcast on Tuesday, 9/24/2013 from 2:00-3:00pm, to outline the scholarship application process and explain what judges look for in quality scholarship applications. We’ll discuss several easy ways to make a scholarship application stand out, and provide samples of high quality resumes and essays for reference. The webcast is free but registration is required.
