The Intermountain Section is Happy to Announce the One AWWA Operator Scholarship
By:  Alane Boyd

In early 2015, AWWA created a philanthropic program called The Water Equation, which is based on the idea that Knowledge + Sharing = Transformation. One of AWWA's strategies for solving this equation is to focus on the knowledge variable in the equation and grow AWWA's existing scholarship portfolio into the world's largest scholarship portfolio for water. Step one in growing AWWA's scholarship program is to help solve the funding challenges of water operator education. To do this, AWWA has created the One AWWA Operator Scholarship.

The idea behind the One AWWA Operator Scholarship goes beyond helping students pay for their education. This scholarship also helps solve the water sector’s present and future need for more trained, educated, and licensed operators.

The Intermountain Section has partnered with the Association to create a new One AWWA Operator Scholarship for the Section.  The Association will match, dollar for dollar, Section funding to create the $1,000 scholarship.

As an added bonus, each scholarship recipient will receive a one-year AWWA Operator membership.

The Applicant must be a current water operator or seeking to enter the water operator profession and they must be pursuing an Operator’s License or Certification, two or four-year degree related to the water operator profession, or professional development.

Deadline for Applications is August 1, 2017. Selection will be made by the Scholarship Committee of the Intermountain Section AWWA. The award will be presented at the Intermountain Section AWWA Annual Conference at the closing luncheon on Friday, October 13, 2017
