The Florida Stormwater Association's Scholarship Program awards financial assistance to qualified students attending Florida colleges and universities whose education interest is in stormwater research, management or finance.
Applications will be accepted from graduate students in colleges or schools of engineering, natural science, public administration (or closely related fields) that have an interest in stormwater science, engineering or finance. Eligibility is limited to students in good standing that are currently enrolled on a full-time basis in a graduate program at a Florida college or university and plan to attend classes in the coming fall semester on a full-time basis.
