Maine Water Utilities Scholarship Fund Scholarships

The Maine Water Utilities Scholarship Fund (MWUSF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, was developed to encourage and promote the pursuit of careers in Maine’s water and wastewater profession through the administration of a scholarship program.  MWUSF offers several $1,000 scholarships each year. The scholarships include the following:

Judy Wallingford Scholarship: sponsored by the Maine Water Company in recognition of Judy Wallingford’s distinguished career of service to Maine water customers and communities. This scholarship is for a female student enrolled in a secondary education program related to the water works profession.

Madeline A. Storer and Peter A. Lancaster Scholarships: sponsored by the Maine Water Utilities Association and its supporting members, these scholarships commemorate the life and work of two notable water utility professionals. Students who are enrolled in a secondary educational institution with an interest in pursuing a career in the water or wastewater field are eligible.
