The Berkey is a company that works diligently to provide fresh, clean and pure drinking water to individuals across the globe.

This is all made possible thanks to the determination of the staff to improve the quality of everyone’s drinking water.

In addition to helping provide clean drinking water, at The Berkey we also understand how important it is for young people to receive a college education. After all, the future of fresh water and a healthy life lies in the hands of the youth.

As a result, we are now offering a $500 scholarship to any student meeting our requirements and who plans to attend an accredited college or university in the U.S.

Application Deadline: June 15, 2019

Winner Announced: July 1, 2019

Our scholarship will be awarded to the applicant who best explains the concept of water conservation and presents a new and exciting idea in this area.

Water conservation is more important today, than ever before. In a world where one in nine people still don’t have access to safe drinking water, it is imperative to understand what needs to be done to protect the fresh water supply. To ensure this problem doesn’t become more atrocious, water conservation methods must be put into place.

Our goal is to see how much a student understands about water conservation and if they can come up with new, innovative ideas to help preserve the water supply we have today, and ensure it lasts into the future. Even if the idea seems “far-fetched” we encourage you to apply.

With the essay information above in mind, any student interested in applying for this scholarship needs to submit a 1,200-word essay on the importance of water conservation, along with an original idea of what can be done in the future.
