National Propane Gas Foundation Scholarships

NPGA supports education!

The National Propane Gas Foundation (NPGF) Scholarship Fund provides $1,000 and $2,000 scholarships to students pursuing any course of study at two- or four-year colleges or technical, trade or vocational schools. Eligible applicants are children of employees of NPGA member companies, state propane associations, and/or PERC. Every year, NPGF awards 100+ scholarships and we are growing because of the generosity of the propane industry. Since 1994, the NPGF Scholarship Fund has awarded more than two million dollars in scholarships to 1500+ children of NPGA member company employees. NPGF’s fundraising efforts play a critical role in enabling us to make additional awards beyond our endowment.
