NAF Scholarship Program

PURPOSE

The purpose of the NAF Scholarship and Educational Assistant Fund is to encourage and support talented students in need to pursue careers in the arts and sciences. We accomplish this through scholarships awarded to qualified students who would otherwise not be able to pay for all or part of their educational expenses. Our scholarship recipients are selected on both financial need and a merit-based approach. Successful candidates must meet be committed to the values and legacy of community service.

SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

Our program awards scholarships in three categories – One-Year Scholarships, Four-Year Scholarships, and NAF Relative Scholarships. Applicants fill out one application that will be used to consider candidates for any of the categories. Applicants should indicate on the application which category (or categories) they wish to be considered for, provided that they meet the requirements for that category. General requirements for all NAF scholarships are specified on the “Scholarship Selection Criteria” sheet of the application.
Scholarships One-year or four-year scholarships are awarded to full-time students progressing towards a degree or certification in an eligible program. Candidates must meet requirements to be considered for scholarship renewal after the first year award.
