Richard A. Herbert
Memorial Scholarship
Opportunities
Background

Application Process

In 1980, AWRA established the EndowmentMemorial Fund to be used for the enhancement of
education in water resources. The fund has since been
renamed the Richard A. Herbert Memorial Educational
Fund to honor Richard A. Herbert - a champion for
water resources education - who passed away in 1994.
In order to carry out his vision, AWRA is proud to
announce the availability of scholarships derived from
the proceeds of this fund.

A complete application packet contains:
* Title page that includes the applicant's full name,
permanent mailing address, email address, phone
number where he or she may be easily reached, and the
type of scholarship (undergraduate or graduate).
* Two-page summary (approx. 500 words) of his/her
academic interests and achievements, extracurricular
interests, and career goals as they relate to the above
selection criteria.
* Resume or curriculum vitae.
* Three signed letters of reference from professors and/
or advisors. Letters of reference MUST include the
signatures of the referee - PDFs of the signed letters
work best.
* Transcripts of all college courses (undergraduate
and graduate). Legible copies of "Issued to Student"
transcripts are acceptable to save on fees but unofficial
grade reports (such as those students can access
from their online student accounts at the university)
are unacceptable. Application packets that include
unofficial grade reports will not be considered.
* Application packets should be submitted electronically
to info@awra.org and limited to 5mb in size to ensure
delivery. All applications must be submitted in their
entirety. AWRA will provide an acknowledgement of
receipt of your application but will not provide updates to
your application status or request missing information.
Please make sure your application is complete when it is
submitted. We look forward to hearing from you.
Deadline: All applications and supporting materials must
be received electronically by APRIL 23, 2018.
Questions? Call AWRA at (540) 687-8390 or send an email
to info@awra.org ■

Eligibility & Awards Available
Each applicant must be a national AWRA member.
At least one $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to a
full-time undergraduate student working toward his/
her first undergraduate degree and who is enrolled in
a program related to water resources for the 2017-2018
academic year. At least one $2,000 scholarship will also
be awarded to a full-time graduate student enrolled in
a program relating to water resources for the 2017-2018
academic year.*

Selection Criteria
The undergraduate scholarship will be awarded to
the student most qualified by academic performance.
Measures of academic performance include the cumulative
grade point average, relevance of the student's curriculum
to water resources, and leadership in extracurricular
activities related to water resources. The graduate
scholarship will be awarded to the student most qualified
by academic and/or research performance. The measures
of academic performance are identical to those of the
undergraduate scholarship with the addition of the
quality of the student's research and its relevance to
water resources. Recipients will be selected by the AWRA
Student Activities Committee and announced during
summer 2018.

*The AWRA Board of Directors may, at its sole discretion,
approve additional scholarship awards, based upon the
performance of the Memorial Fund.
