About the Scholarship

WSSC Water offers annual scholarships to college students majoring in engineering fields vital to its mission. Named in honor of former Commissioners Joyce Starks and Gene W. Counihan, the goal of the scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to students from WSSC Water’s service district in furtherance of their engineering studies and encourage applicants/winners to consider careers in the water and water resource recovery industry; preferably, at WSSC Water.

Two new scholarships for $2,000 each may be awarded; one to a Prince George's County resident and one to a Montgomery County resident. Winners are eligible for additional awards of $2,000 each year for up to four consecutive years as long as they meet residency and grade point average (GPA) requirements. Winners also receive priority consideration for paid summer internship opportunities at WSSC Water.
