PA American Water Kicks Off 2012 Stream Of Learning Scholarship Program
PA American Water Tuesday announced applications are being accepted for its 2012 Stream of Learning Scholarship Program to provide college scholarship assistance to students who are planning to pursue careers in the water and wastewater industry.
The deadline for applications is February 29.
The program is designed to support outstanding students living in Pennsylvania American Water’s service territories who are charting a course of study in specific fields, ranging from engineering to environmental science, which are crucial to the water and wastewater business.
“Previous winners of our Stream of Learning Scholarships have been extremely bright, dedicated students who have much to offer for the future of our industry,” said Kathy L. Pape, president of Pennsylvania American Water. “Through this program, we’re looking to attract more talented young people who will share our commitment to maintaining public health, protecting the environment and promoting economic development.”
The company will award scholarships of $2,000 each to 10 students who are selected through the program’s application process. Applicants must meet the following criteria:
-- Students must currently live in one of Pennsylvania American Water’s service areas. (Students can attend college outside of the company’s service territory.)
-- Students must plan to attend a two- or four-year college or technical school.
-- Students must plan to study environmental science, environmental engineering, biology or chemistry.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges and will receive their awards in May. Family members of Pennsylvania American Water employees are not eligible.
This month, the company is sending scholarship brochures and applications to high school guidance counselors throughout its service territory. Applications can be downloaded from the company’s website.
