2018 Scholarships Awarded

Congratulations to all who applied and especially to those selected as the 2018 winners!

Each year, the month of May brings another school year to a close. It is also a time to offer assistance to many young graduates who are interested in continuing their goals to include a higher educational degree or certification.
The ARWA has for many years organized an Annual Golf Tournament Fundraiser in support of the
John A. Garrett Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Program is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of Greg Dutton, President; David White, Vice President; Randolph Hall, Secretary/Treasurer for the organization of this tournament.
Applicants are judged on scholastic and leadership abilities as well as their community involvement. For 2018, 21 application packages were received and the following winners were selected.

The information below is 2018 Scholarship Information. It is for your information only and is subject to change for next year.

The Alabama Rural Water Association offers educational scholarships annually to deserving individuals through the John A. Garrett Scholarship Fund. Six scholarships are offered to individuals who meet the criteria described here. Two recipients will be selected from each of three regions North, Central and South, as shown on the Alabama Map in the amount of $750 per recipient.

We ask that you provide each of your employees who may be interested or have children who are interested a copy of this package. Where more than one child in a family or more than one employee in a utility is interested, each is eligible to apply. The application must be completed in its entirety and the utility must be a current member of the Alabama Rural Water Association.

To insure continued growth in the number of certified water and wastewater operators in the State of Alabama, three of the six scholarships will be offered to individuals striving to enhance their professionalism by attending Alabama Water or Wastewater Operator Certification Courses for Grades I-IV certification examination preparation. This is offered to expand the educational opportunities of those individuals interested in water and wastewater industry careers. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.

Please note the application package must be postmarked no later than March 31, 2018. Any package received with a later postmark will not be considered. If you have any questions, please call the ARWA office at (334) 396-5511.
