Pennsylvania American Water Kicks Off 2014 Stream Of Learning Scholarship Program

Pennsylvania American Water today announced that applications are being accepted for its 2014 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 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, which are crucial to the water and wastewater business.

The company will award scholarships of $2,000 each to 10 students who are selected through the program’s application process. Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Students must currently live in one of Pennsylvania American Water’s service areas. (Students can attend college outside of the company’s service territory.)
  • Students must plan to attend a two- or four-year college or technical school.
  • Students must plan to study environmental science, environmental engineering, biology or chemistry.

“Previous winners of our Stream of Learning Scholarships have been extremely bright, dedicated students who have much to offer for our industry’s future,” said Kathy L. Pape, president of Pennsylvania American Water. “Through this program, we’re looking to attract and encourage talented young people who share our commitment to maintaining public health, protecting the environment and promoting economic development.”

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 is sending scholarship brochures and applications to high school guidance counselors throughout its service territory. Applications can also be downloaded from the company’s website at www.pennsylvaniaamwater.com and must be postmarked by March 14, 2014.

Pennsylvania American Water, a subsidiary of American Water (NYSE: AWK), is the largest water utility in the state, providing high-quality and reliable water and/or wastewater services to approximately 2.2 million people.
