Share |

The Student Scholarship Program, administered by the Texas Rural Water Foundation (TRWF), was established to recognize and assist qualified individuals in their pursuit of a higher education and a potential career in the water and/or wastewater industry.

The TRWF Student Scholarship Program is designed to help defray the costs of tuition, fees, books and/or room and board. The number of annual scholarships awarded and the amount of each scholarship will be based upon the number of qualified applicants and the amount of funds in the TRWF Scholarship Fund for the academic school year 2020–2021. TRWF reserves the right to revise or withhold the award of any or all scholarships offered.

2019-2020 Dwayne Jekel Scholarship


Dwayne Jekel served on the Texas Rural Water Association Board of Directors for 30 years from 1982-2012 and was a water industry leader. Mr. Jekel was the owner and operator of D&L Service Company in Cameron, Texas. 

Thanks to an endowment set up by Mr. Jekel’s family, this scholarship will benefit students who are interested in the water and wastewater industry. Starting in 2019, one Dwayne Jekel scholarship will be given each year in the amount of $3000 to the highest scoring applicant to cover the costs of tuition, books, and other school expenses. Selection is based on a combination of scores collected from the application and graded by the TRWF Board of Directors.

Dwayne Jekel’s dedication to water and his community will never be forgotten. His legacy and mission will continue thanks to the generosity of his family
