GRA’s Scholastic Fund Program benefits regional academic groundwater programs and their students through scholarships, travel to and attendance at GRA conferences, and departments involved in California groundwater research. Much of the support has been received through sponsors at GRA Branch events. The GRA membership also contributes to the GRA Scholastic Fund Program as part of GRA's annual membership drive. Since the program inception, GRA members and Branch sponsors have contributed over $30,000 to the educational needs of California’s groundwater students.

In 2010, GRA and the Water Education Foundation (WEF) joined to form the GRA-WEF Scholastic Fund Program, a continuation of GRA's longstanding Scholastic Fund Program. Considering the important role that groundwater plays in California's overall water resource management, it is vital that GRA continue to invest meaningfully in the education of students who strive to "protect and improve groundwater supply and quality." Through the GRA-WEF Scholastic Fund, you can join us in investing meaningfully in education.

You can visit the GRA-WEF Scholastic Fund page, or contact Stephanie Uriostegui for more information.
