American Water opens applications for 2024 Inclusion & Diversity Scholarship

Awards totaling $100,000 will be distributed nationwide to students continuing education

Camden-based American Water recently said it opened the application process for its 2024 Inclusion & Diversity Scholarship. Awards totaling $100,000 will be distributed nationwide to students within America Water’s national footprint, continuing their education in a nonmedical STEM or business-related field at an accredited four-year college or university.

“American Water is thrilled to again offer the Inclusion & Diversity Scholarship, providing equitable opportunities for students across American Water’s national footprint to continue their education,” Lori Sutton, chief inclusion officer, American Water, said. “This scholarship supports the development of our future leaders and reinforces our unwavering commitment to inclusion, diversity & equity.”

The I&D Scholarship will be administered through a partnership with Scholarship America, the nation’s leading nonprofit scholarship and educational support organization.

American Water announced the inaugural class of I&D Scholarship recipients earlier this year. Ten students were selected out of 1,475 applications and received $10,000 through the scholarship. Awards are renewable up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, based on eligibility.

The I&D Scholarship is offered annually to eligible students through 2026, totaling over $1 million in awards.
