Recently, TRWA transferred its Scholarship Fund to the Texas Rural Water Research and Education Foundation (TRWREF). This Fund was established to recognize and assist qualified individuals in their pursuit of a higher education and potential career in the water and/or wastewater industry.
The Student Scholarship Program is designed to assist young people in the furthering of their education by helping to defray the costs of tuition, fees, bookss, and/or room and board when attending college.
The Operator/Manager Scholarship Program is designed to assist water personnel in attending and completing an approved TRWA operator certification course.
The Scholarship Program is made possible by the voluntary contributions of our members.
TRWA covers the administrative costs of the scholarship program so that 100 percent of the voluntary contributions go to funding education.
If you have not already done so, please give to this fund when you renew your membership dues this year.
Applications are now being accepted for Student and Operator/Manager Schloarships.
