The IWEA Clean Water Scholarship is designed to aid students preparing for careers working with the water environment. IWEA may award two scholarships of up to $1000.00 each year. Scholarship recipients will be announced at IWEA's Annual Conference, traditionally held in March. Scholarships will be applied to the next academic year.
- Be an Illinois resident or attend an accredited Illinois college or university.
- Have completed at least two years of their undergraduate education at the time of the award. Graduate students are also encouraged to apply.
- Have a cumulative college GPA of at least 2.5.
- Be a full-time student enrolled in a water-related field of study such as civil or environmental engineering, environmental science, or wastewater systems operation.
IWEA asks that all applicants use our online application form. The application asks you to attach a copy of your resume, an essay/personnel statement, a reference letter, and your transcripts. Please submit these documents in PDF format. It is not necessary for the transcripts to be "official" transcripts. You may want to read through the detailed instructions before completing the online application.
