Process

In the spring of each year, applications are made available to students desiring to apply for the various scholarships. General communications are made through the NCRS Driveline publication so that all members are aware of the program guidelines and timeline. Applications are also available on the NCRS Foundation Website. Applications received before or after the posted dates will not be considered. Similarly, applications which are incomplete or containing erroneous information will not be considered.

The group responsible for screening all applications and making scholarship award recommendations is the NCRS Foundation Scholarship Review Committee. This outside review committee is made up of individuals who are not members of the NCRS.

Scholarships are awarded on a one academic year basis. Payments will be made to the student in late September, early October after evidence is provided to the Scholarship Committee of their successful enrollment at their school.

Scholarships are not loans and repayment of financial assistance received is not expected. However, recipients are encouraged to contribute to the scholarship fund at the appropriate time in their life and according to their financial ability so that future participants will have the same opportunity.

Special request of the scholarship fund which is not covered by these guidelines will be reviewed by the NCRS Foundation Board of Directors.
