Financial Assistance for ISAWWA Members Pursuing Continuing Education

Think ISAWWA’s Scholarships are just for full-time college students?  Think again!  ISAWWA members who are pursuing continuing education are eligible too, and we want to help you advance your career in the water industry.  

Safe Water Scholarship

If you are going back to school for a bachelor’s or graduate degree related to your career path, or taking classes to obtain a higher operator certification, you are a candidate for the scholarships.  For example, one of our earliest scholarship winners was a utility employee who worked her way up from meter reading to working in the utility’s accounting division.  She went back to school to get a degree in accounting to enable her to continue advancing in that area of the utility’s operations.


One AWWA Operator Scholarship
The One AWWA Operator Scholarship addresses the present and future workforce need for operators by providing training and educational funding. 

The One AWWA Operator Scholarship is funded through a matching fund from AWWA’s The Water Equation Campaign and participating Sections .  ISAWWA will award up to the amount of $2,000 for Water Operating training and education annually.

IPSI Scholarship
The Illinois Section of the American Water Works Association (ISAWWA) will award a $500 scholarship towards tuition for each year, a total of $1500 of the three year IPSI program.

Applications are due by January 1, 2018 for the Safe Water & Operator Scholarships, and by January 15, 2018 for the IPSI Scholarship.
