ACWA began its scholarship program in 1961 to encourage talented and innovative students to join the effort to ensure California’s water quality and to implement sound water management policies. This year, ACWA continues its academic scholarship by offering a number of scholarships, including the ACWA Scholarship.

Each year, ACWA awards two $3,500 scholarships to qualified students to be applied to tuition and fees for the upcoming academic year.
