Every year Water & Wastes Digest supports future water and wastewater
professionals through the WWEMA/WWD 2011 Scholarship, by awarding $1,000
to a student seeking a career in a water- or wastewater-related field.
The deadline for 2011 applications is fast approaching—Friday, Oct. 21, 2011.
To qualify for the WWD scholarship, students must have a parent employed
by a WWEMA-member company and must be accepted into a four-year
bachelor’s program in an acceptable field of study by an accredited institution
of higher learning. Examples of acceptable fields of study include biology,

environmental sciences and/or natural resources planning.
Applications are judged on the basis of: academic achievement; leadership
and community service; level of commitment to environmental protection, as
demonstrated in an essay and stated career goals; and overall presentation,
including emphasis in science courses, relevance of program of study, sincerity
of commitment and demonstration of special need.
