Each year, Water & Wastes Digest supports future water and wastewater professionals through the WWEMA/WWD Scholarship program, awarding $1,000 to a student seeking a career in a water- or wastewater-related field.
The deadline for 2012 applications is fast approaching—Friday, Oct. 19, 2012.
To qualify for the WWD scholarship, students must have a parent employed by a WWEMA member company; they 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, chemical engineering, chemistry, civil engineering, environmental engineering, 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.
Applications can be obtained by e-mail at [email protected].
