As a member of the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA), Helix Water District is proud to share ACWA scholarship opportunities for college and university students working towards a career in water. Note that the application deadline is March 1, 2017.
Graduate students with an eye toward water resources may be eligible for the Stephen K. Hall ACWA Water Law & Policy Scholarship created in 2007 to honor former ACWA Executive Director Steve Hall upon his retirement. The $7,000 scholarship is presented annually to a qualified graduate student majoring in law, policy or public administration with a focus or concentration in California water resources.
Undergraduate students majoring in engineering, irrigation technology, environmental sciences, public administration and other water-resources related fields may be eligible for one of two $3,500 ACWA Scholarships, or the $5,000 Clair Hill Scholarship. These scholarships are awarded to California residents attending a four-year, publicly funded college or university full-time as a junior or senior during the year the scholarship is awarded.
