The Details

NTPDA will invoice companies following the selection of the recipient or recipients and one check will be sent the recipient from NTPDA in the full amount. 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. 

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.

The selection process is an extremely difficult one because of the many outstanding applicants each year.  Therefore, great care is taken to assure that impartial and unprejudiced choices are made.   Applications are sent to the NTPDA office where they are logged in and noted with the date received and assigned a student code.  The numbered applications are then sent to the Scholarship Committee and the original kept in the NTPDA office.  Based on the criteria above, the committee then ‘rank’ the applications, choosing the top ranked as the recipients of the scholarships.  Their selections are then forwarded to the NTPDA office for announcement to the Association and in the student's local newspaper.

Applications MUST be complete and received in the NTPDA office by Monday, March 18th, 2019.

Good luck and thank you!
