Through their membership with the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA), the Zone 7 Water Agency is offering several scholarship opportunities for promising college students majoring in a water resources-related field.
ACWA’s scholarship program was founded in 1961 to “motivate committed students to join the effort to ensure California’s water quality through sound management policies” and “cultivate a bright future for students who are dedicated to working for a safe, stable water supply for all Californians.”
Four scholarships will be awarded this year, each intended to support the recipient’s area of study; the Stephen K. Hall ACWA Water Law & Policy Scholarship is the largest, and is given to a graduate student majoring in law, policy or public administration with a focus or concentration in California water resources.
Several undergraduates will also receive money; the $5,000 Clair Hill Scholarship is given to one student majoring in engineering, agricultural and/or urban water supply, environmental studies, public administration and other water-resources related fields. Two more students majoring in the same fields will also be awarded a $3,500 ACWA scholarship.
Scholarship applications must be submitted online by March 1. A complete list of qualifications and eligibility requirements, as well as a link to the online application system, are available at www.acwa.com/about/scholarships.
