Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash -  June 2013

Illinois Public Service Institute Committee
Steve Page, Chair

f you are planning on some leadership training this year make sure that IPSI, Illinois Public Service Institute, is at the top of your list. IPSI is a three-year training program which provides instruction expressly designed for public service professionals. You will meet and learn with individuals that are faced with the same issues that are common among public service departments across the State; meanwhile, discussing how the course can be applied in your individual situation. The course is divided into three one-week sessions (one week each year) focusing on training in public service, personal growth and professional development. Check back in the future for comments from scholarship recipients.

The Illinois Section of the American Water Works Association is a sponsor of IPSI. There currently are 7 scholarship recipients and the ISAWWA has 4 to add for the 2013 class.

Here is the link to the detailed information including the online application.

ISAWWA will award a $500 scholarship towards tuition for each year, a total of $1500 of the cost of the three-year IPSI program. The money will be paid to your employer, unless you have paid for the program, in which event reimbursement will be made to you. It is the ISAWWA’s intention to sponsor you for the three-year program; therefore, you should apply with the intention of committing to the three years. The Illinois Public Service Institute may be started any year even though it is a three-year program. Following are the criteria for application. The time will also count as 34 hours to maintain your EPA certification course ID 5271.

  • You must be a member of the AWWA.
  • You must submit your application to the ISAWWA IPSI Committee for review before August 1st of the year you plan on attending.
  • Your application shall include a letter of intent including why you should be considered for sponsorship.
  • You will be required to submit a letter each year giving your opinion of the program and how it has helped you.

The scholarship committee would like a short explanation of why you are applying for the scholarship, and how this course will help you in your career. I’m not looking for an essay; a paragraph on each part (the why and the how) will be sufficient. Be sure to include the fact that you are a member of ISAWWA. You’re not going to be judged on English grammar; we just want to know who and why. This can all be done through the ISAWWA web page and the application will be directed to the Committee.

Include a completed registration form that will hold a spot for you while the scholarship is being considered.
