NAF Scholarship Assistance Program
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 would otherwise not be able to pay for their educational expenses.
Our scholarship recipients are selected on both financial need and a merit-based approach. Candidates must commit to the mission, values, and legacy of NAF’s charitable works and community service.
Applicants should submit one (1) application indicating why they deserve assistance from NAF. General requirements for NAF scholarships are specified under “Selection Criteria”. Applicants must not count solely on NAF for extended assistance.
SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PROCESS:
NAF will only consider applications received between January 1 and March 31. Fill the online application form, save or download it and submit it by email or post. NAF is not responsible for missed deadlines or incomplete applications. Decisions by NAF are final, except where more compelling documentation is requested and provided.
