In 2016, the Nevada WateReuse Association created a scholarship program for students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs at schools located in southern Nevada. The second scholarship cycle in 2017 had an impressive turnout receiving many competitive applications from students in a variety of programs of study. The scholarship introduces students to participating in WateReuse Nevada and supports them in preparing to become leaders in water reuse.
At the quarterly meeting held on January 10, 2018, the scholarship recipients were presented with their awards. Two undergraduate scholarships were awarded to Hannah Woods and Yesika Otano-Alonso. Four graduate scholarships were awarded to Fernanda Bacaro, Alisson Boeing, John Michael Gonzales, and Harshad Oswal. Each student received a certificate acknowledging their achievement along with a $1,000 scholarship to be used for their studies.
Water reuse leads to One Water.
WateReuse Nevada promotes a sustainable water cycle through collaborative resource stewardship.
