SUEZ and NAWC to Award Scholarships to High School Students
SUEZ and the National Association of Water Companies – New York Chapter will award eight $3,000 scholarships to New York high school seniors who plan to pursue a degree in a water industry-related field.
The NAWC is a professional organization representing private water service companies throughout the United States. Through its scholarship program, the organization encourages young people to pursue careers in fields related to the water industry.
“As the water industry becomes more complex, so does the need for enthusiastic, intelligent and highly motivated young people who have the educational background to lead the industry forward,” said Chris Graziano, vice president and general manager of SUEZ operations in New York. “These scholarships help seniors obtain higher education that strengthens the future of the country’s water industry.”
Scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors living within SUEZ service areas in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Tioga counties who meet the following criteria:
• United States citizen.
• New York resident for at least 5 years.
• Pursuing a degree at a college or university (two- or four-year) as an undergraduate student (part- or full-time).
• Maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 GPA grading scale.
• Enrolling in a curriculum related to the water utility industry or related fields, such as natural resource management, environmental sciences, biology, chemistry, engineering, computer science and environmental law.
Completed applications must be submitted by April 15, 2022. The winners are announced in June.
