In order to encourage the advancement of knowledge in all aspects of water pollution control, NEWEA established the Edward A. Kowsz Memorial Scholarship. Successful applicants are eligible for reimbursement of tuition, registration and other related costs associated with training or coursework in wastewater treatment, collection, disposal, management, or other relevant topics. Scholarships usually average $300 per application, but may vary depending on the number of requests.
Scholarships may be awarded for courses at accredited colleges, universities, or technical/specialty schools or for self-study training programs as approved by the Scholarship Committee. Applicants must be a NEWEA member or a member of any of the six Affiliated State Associations for at least two years to be eligible.
