PA American Water Now Accepting Applications For Stream Of Learning College Scholarship Program

PA American Water Thursday announced applications are being accepted for its 2018 Stream of Learning Scholarship Program to provide financial assistance to high school seniors who are planning to pursue careers in the water and wastewater industry.  The deadline for applications is March 23.
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.
The company will award scholarships of $1,000 each to 10 students who are selected through the program’s application process. Applicants must meet the following criteria:
-- Students must currently live in Pennsylvania American Water service area. (Students can attend a learning institution outside of the company’s service territory.)
-- Students must plan to attend a two- or four-year college or technical school, and must plan to study environmental science, engineering, biology or chemistry.
-- Students must be high school seniors. (Current college students are not eligible.)
“In the nine years since we launched the program, we have seen our Stream of Learning Scholarships attract the interest of more bright, dedicated students to our industry,” said President Jeff McIntyre of Pennsylvania American Water. “We believe in supporting talented young people who have so much to offer and who share our commitment to environmental stewardship and protecting public health.”
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 sent scholarship brochures and applications to high school guidance counselors throughout its service territory.
