About this Fellowship
The Herbert scholarship from the American Water Resources Association (AWRA) provides financial support to current undergraduate and graduate students in degree programs related to water resources.
Applicants must be AWRA members and have been enrolled fulltime during the current academic year.
The undergraduate scholarship will be awarded to the student member most qualified by academic performance. Measures of academic performance include the cumulative grade point average, relevance of the student's curriculum to water resources, and leadership in extracurricular activities related to water resources. The graduate scholarship will be awarded to the student member most qualified by academic and/or research performance. The measures of academic performance are identical to those of the undergraduate scholarship with the addition of the quality of the student's research and its relevance to water resources.
Deadlines are typically in early May, but be sure to check the competition website for the current cycle’s deadline.
A $2000 scholarship is awarded to at least one undergraduate and graduate student.
