 Scholarship Program   

The Board of Directors of the South Dakota Water and Wastewater Association has established a financial aid scholarship program to benefit the children of the members of the SDWWA.  A scholarship committee has been appointed by the SDWWA president.  The goal of the scholarship committee is to raise a minimum of $10,000 to be placed in an annuity.  The interest will be drawn from the account on an annual basis and awarded as a scholarship.  The ultimate goal of the committee is to raise $20,000 for this purpose.  The scholarship will be known as the SDWWA Annual Memorial Scholarship.  The scholarship will be open to all children of SDWWA members who are attending a post secondary educational institution.  The scholarship committee will, on an annual basis, award the scholarship in honor of a deceased member of the Association who has made significant contributions to the Association and/or the water/wastewater industry.  By initiating this scholarship program we are giving back a little, and showing support for the families of our water and wastewater professionals who have given so much in the pursuit of excellence in our industry.

Contributors to the SDWWA Annual Scholarship fund will be recognized and acknowledged in relation to their level of contribution and as permanent record of the Association.  The levels of contribution are:

Kryptonite Contributor------------------------------------$5,000 or more
