The American Water Inclusion and Diversity Scholarship program is awarding up to ten renewable awards of $10,000 each to students in the 24 states where American Water operates. 

Applicants must be high school seniors or graduates, or current college undergraduates, residing and/or attending college in an eligible state, and must self-identify as a member of at least one of the following traditionally underrepresented groups:  

  • American Indian or Alaska Native   
  • Asian   
  • Black or African American   
  • Hispanic or Latino   
  • Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander   
  • Female (any race or ethnicity) 

Applicants must also be planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate study, pursuing a certificate or degree in a non-medical STEM or business-related field, at an accredited four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year. 

Awards are renewable up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of maintaining a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and full-time enrollment in an eligible major.
