 The Scholarship Program provides professional improvement opportunities for members. The funding is provided by the NACAA Educational Foundation.

Scholarships can be awarded to an individual or groups. In order to be eligible for up to $1,000, you must have contributed at least $40 to the fund. Members need to be vested at $100 to be eligible for up to $2,000 during their Extension career. No monetary award can be over $1,000 in any one year. The online application submission deadline is June 1 annually. The award recipients are selected on the 1st day of AM/PIC. This year applications were reviewed/awarded on July 10.
