The Dushinske & Jamison Water Resources Scholarship Endowment was established by the Foundation within the North Dakota Community Foundation and provides scholarships to four deserving North Dakota students whose families have taken an active role in state water resource management.
Due to school closures limiting student access, the North Dakota Water Education Foundation’s (NDWEF) deadline for submittal of applications for the Dushinske and Jamison Water Resources Scholarship has been extended to May 1, 2020.
The Dushinske & Jamison Water Resources Scholarship Endowment was established by the NDWEF within the North Dakota Community Foundation in memory of Russ Dushinske and Warren Jamison and their distinguished service, dedicated leadership and life-long devotion to water development in North Dakota.
Each year, a $1,500 scholarship is awarded to four applicants. Scholarship recipients must attend a North Dakota college or university and preference will be given to, but not limited to, students studying water-related fields and students whose families have taken active roles in state water resource management.
Scholarship recipients are required to attend the annual North Dakota Joint Water Convention Awards Banquet on Dec. 10 to read their winning essays.
The recipients of the 2020 Dushinske & Jamison Scholarship will be chosen by an impartial judge and announced in May. The winning essays will be published in the North Dakota Water magazine, as will the essays of scholarship finalists.
