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 three utility-related questions.
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 $55,000 to 96 students from 35 different IMUA member communities statewide.
The deadline for submitting applications and essays is Friday, March 11, 2022. A committee of municipal utility officials will select a total of four (4) finalists, each of whom will receive a framed certificate and $1,000 scholarship award. Winners will be announced sometime in April.
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. Applicants may contact IMUA’s DeeDee Bunch at (217) 789-4632 or firstname.lastname@example.org more information.
