2020 IWEA Scholarship Fundraiser

IWEA's Golf Outing and Annual Conference Gift Basket Raffle raiser over $4000 each year for scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to college students planning water environment careers.

This year, amid shelter in place orders and concerns for community health, IWEA made the difficult decision to cancel both our Golf Outing and the Annual Conference. Please consider helping our organization to support students by contributing to our on-line fundraiser.

There is no set contribution amount and any amount would be appreciated. All corporate and individual sponsors will be acknowledged on our website, in our newsletter, and in a unique e-blast. Please use the link below to access more information and/or to contribute.


IWEA thanks the contributors to our 2020 Scholarship Fundraiser and encourages others to join them.
