WISCONSIN RURAL WATER ASSOCIATION
WATER INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS (WIP) 2024 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
DEADLINE DATE IS: MARCH 3, 2024
As the Wisconsin Rural Water Association developed and grew over time, it became apparent that there was a need for a separate affiliated extension of the organization that would allow for individual membership, involvement and promotion of professional development for the water and wastewater industries.
Through the payment of annual dues and the money raised through sponsorship of events such as the Annual Golf Outing, the WIP members promote professional water and wastewater development by the donation of training materials, equipment and annual scholarships to Rural Water members and their families. Through such efforts, WIP hopes to not only assist those currently working in the water and wastewater industries, but also to help protect Wisconsin’s natural resources by encouraging the involvement of dedicated and educated individuals in generations to come.
Follow the links below to apply for a scholarship or make a donation to the scholarship donation fund.
Scholarships will be made to a student to defray the cost of tuition, books, or room and board at an accredited institution of higher learning approved by the Wisconsin Rural Water Association (WRWA).
