Pelican Water’s College Scholarship


Pelican Water is dedicated to creating cutting-edge water treatment technology to provide citizens and corporations with cleaner, safer water through our environmentally friendly water softening systems. The water filtration systems and other products by Pelican Water eliminate salt, chemical discharge, and other harmful organisms from drinking water.

As the California drought worsens and other global environmental crises occur as a result of climate change and habitat destruction, a new generation of leaders and innovators will have to push ever further to combat these issues and pave the way toward cleaner and safer water and natural resources for future generations. Pelican Water is committed to doing our part by providing scholarships and grants to students who display integrity, passion, and a commitment to excellence that will help shape the future.

The deadline for our biannual scholarship is rapidly approaching. All materials must be submitted to (submissions@pelicanwater.com) no later than October 16, 2015. We are asking students at the undergraduate and graduate levels with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 to answer the following essay prompt: What are some ways to instill a greater sense of urgency with water conservation in young people, and what would be the marketing slogan Pelican Water would use to highlight the new campaign?

In addition to their essay, students applying for the Pelican Water College Scholarship are asked to submit their most recent grades via transcript, whether that is a High School graduate transcript or an undergraduate transcript. And again, students that apply must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. Students are also required to submit one letter of recommendation, preferably from a former teacher or extracurricular activity supervisor.

Pelican Water seeks future leaders who are genuinely interested in shaping implementable solutions to problems faced by our global community. As a company that actively seeks sustainable ways to protect the world’s most important resource, we know how vital it is to instill a sense of urgency and agency into the young minds that will soon make policies, pass laws, and take charge of the wellbeing of our planet. This scholarship is one of many ways in which we give back and make connections with the innovators of tomorrow.

Pelican Water is excited to offer numerous prizes for the winners of the Pelican Water College Scholarship. The prizes for first through third place are $1,500, $1,000, and $500 respectively. In addition, Pelican Water chooses three runners-up who receive a free countertop drinking filter, which filters upward of 60 contaminants from drinking water, and four glass Table Bottles, courtesy of Pelican Water. The deadline to enter is approaching, so start brainstorming effective techniques to encourage water conservation and get writing.
