American Water announced a $1 million commitment over four years to underserved and underrepresented students continuing education through a new Inclusion and Diversity (“I&D”) Scholarship Program.
In 2023, American Water will provide a combined total of $100,000 to 10 students planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate study, pursuing a certificate or degree in a non-medical STEM or business-related field, through the I&D Scholarship Program. The scholarship program will be offered annually to eligible students through 2026, totaling over $1 million in awards. Scholarship recipients who meet eligibility criteria will have the ability to renew their award up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned.
The I&D Scholarship Program will be administered through a partnership with Scholarship America®, the nation’s leading nonprofit scholarship and educational support organization.
