Welcome to March NTPDA Members! We can almost feel it in the air. And because March is upon us so too is the 2023 Scholarship Deadline. March 15 is the date when all scholarship applications must reach our office in Texas. But first some NTPDA Scholarship details:
This year NTPDA will award 10 trade scholarships and 15 collegiate scholarships. If there are less than 10 trade applicants, the remaining scholarships will go to collegiate applicants. The top two applicants will be awarded $5,000 each and the remaining scholarships will be $3,000 each with the sponsoring company contributing $500 towards the scholarship award per recipient. NTPDA will invoice companies following the selection of the recipients and one check will be sent to the recipient from NTPDA in the full amount following proper documentation*. The lifetime maximum an applicant may receive a NTPDA scholarship is two. There is a limit of two scholarships awarded per paid membership per year. This includes Regular, Associate and Affiliate members.
These scholarships are awarded to deserving students who are NTPDA members, employees of members, or dependents of members or employees. Scholarship applications are open to U.S. and Canadian graduating high school seniors, trade school or college students enrolling full-time (12 or more credit hours) toward a diploma, certificate, or degree at an accredited trade school, college, or university. Completed applications must be accompanied by written verification of affiliation with a NTPDA member company and a Recommendation Letter from someone outside of the sponsoring company or your family.
Here is the LINK to the NTPDA Scholarship Page and the application. Remember the deadline is March 15...so let's go!
*Scholarship recipients must provide evidence to the NTPDA office that college registration is complete before scholarship funds are disbursed. Upon receipt of such evidence, the NTPDA will issue a check to the recipient.
