NAF Scholarship Assistance Program

PURPOSE:

 

The purpose of the NAF Scholarship Assistant Program is to encourage and support talented students in need. We accomplish this through scholarships awarded to qualified students who otherwise could not pay for all or part of their educational expenses.

 

Our scholarship recipients are selected on both financial need and a merit-based approach. Candidates must commit to the values and legacy of NAF (charitable works and community service).

 

SCHOLARSHIP AWARD:

 

Applicants should submit one (1) application and indicate on their form which category they wish to be considered for. General requirements for NAF scholarships are specified under “Selection Criteria”. Scholarships are awarded to students progressing towards a degree, or certification and applicants must meet requirements to be considered for scholarship renewal after the first-year award.

 

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PROCESS:

 

NAF MUST receive applications at least eight (8) months before the start of the intended academic year. NAF is not responsible for missing applications. Applicants must submit applications to NAF by postal or email. Decisions by NAF are final, except where more compelling documentation is provided.
