The mission of the Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association is to promote and educate the public on good lake and watershed management, encourage sustainable stormwater management practices and protect the welfare of lakes and other water resources within the Commonwealth. To help further our mission, we would like to award scholarships to support and acknowledge deserving students who are studying in fields related to water resources.

Must have successfully completed, or will complete by the award date, at least two semesters of undergraduate study and must be a full-time undergraduate, full-time graduate student, or a part-time graduate student enrolled in a curriculum related to water resources including but not limited to: biology, conservation, ecology, engineering, environmental science, geology, hydrology, limnology, storm water management, water quality, or wildlife studies. Other areas related to water resources may also qualify.
The scholarship recipient will be selected on the basis of academic performance, contribution to the field of water resources, and related extracurricular activities.
