Educational Bursary




The Maritime Provinces Water and Wastewater Association (MPWWA) will annually hand out two bursaries in the amount of $1000 each. We will award the bursaries to students who live in one of the four provinces we represent. Since the Maritime Provinces Water and Wastewater Association is a training provider, we want to provide financial help to those furthering their education.
