Education is the Ultimate Investment for the Future
Scholarships are funded from Scholarship Fund endowments earmarked for that purpose and managed by the NPG Foundation. The only limit on the number of scholarships granted is the size of the endowment and the rate of interest that it generates. The first scholarships were awarded in 1995.
The committee will award $110,000 in scholarships to 76 awardees for the 2015-2016 academic year, $110,000 was granted to 73 students for the 2014-2015 year, during the 2013-2014 year $105,000 was awarded to 73 undergraduates, $105,000 in scholarships to 71 students for the 2012-2013 academic year, and for the 2011-2012 academic year $94,000 in scholarships was given to 61 individuals.
