2020 IMUA Scholarship Program Applications Available
The City of Waterloo, in partnership with the Illinois Municipal Utilities Association (IMUA), is again offering a scholarship competition program for eligible high school seniors. Each eligible applicant is asked to submit an application and an essay of 500 words or less addressing their choice of one of four utility-related questions (see attached questions sheet).
The top four (4) vote-getters in this year’s essay competition will receive a finalist certificate and a $1,000 scholarship award check from IMUA.
Applicants must be high school seniors whose parents or legal guardians are residential customers of the City of Waterloo Municipal Utility.
Since it began, the program has awarded more than $47,000 to 88 students from 29 different IMUA member communities statewide.
Organized in 1948, IMUA is a statewide trade association which represents the unified interests of, and provides services to, 50 municipalities which operate their own electric, natural gas, telecommunications, water and wastewater treatment systems.
The deadline for submitting applications and essays is Friday, March 6, 2020. Applicants may contact IMUA’s DeeDee Bunch at (217) 789-4632 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
