The Texas Section AWWA is committed to education of not only our water and wastewater professionals but of our youth and Young Professionals who will become the leaders of the water community.

To meet our goals, we provide a multi-faceted approach to Education.


K-12+ Education

Understanding the value of water is essential for a thriving State and like all things important for our future, education at all levels is essential. As a leader in the Water Community, Texas AWWA is not only committed to classroom education on all aspects of water, we are recognized as a leader in providing Scholarship opportunities to our members to support future leaders in higher education.

Over the years, the Texas Section AWWA has provided nearly $500,000 in scholarships, and every year on a Statewide and local basis through our Chapters provides thousands of dollars of support to higher education.

You can help us continue this program by contacting us at scholarship@tawwa.org or by purchasing our unique Conservation License Plate at http://www.conservetexaswater.org.

We also need your support to advance our K-12 Education programs throughout the state either with your financial or volunteer commitment to our programs. Your financial support is directly applied to providing water education resources to teachers statewide. Your volunteer support can help us coordinate and present water education programs.

You can also donate 'Hands' On" materials to support our Education Outreach.  See a partial list of items and how to donate them at Texas Water 2014 here. DONATE AT TEXAS WATER
