WWEMA/WWD Scholarship to be Awarded

At the outset of the Water & Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association’s Annual Washington Forum this past spring, Robert J. Wimmer, the 2004 chairman of WWEMA, announced a joint effort between the association and Water & Wastes Digest to provide a scholarship to a student seeking a career in a water or wastewater-related field.

Beginning this year, and continuing annually, WWEMA and WWD, will provide one $1,000 scholarship to a student accepted to a college or university to pursue a career in the environmental sciences.

Students whose parent(s) is employed by a WWEMA-member company are eligible for the WWEMA/WWD scholarship.

Before receiving the award, the recipient 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 fields of study include: biology, chemical engineering, chemistry, civil engineering, environmental engineering, environmental sciences and/or natural resources planning.

The 2004 scholarship application process is now open. The deadline for submitting a scholarship application is Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2004.

Applications can be obtained by e-mail at [email protected] or by phoning 847/391-1011.
