Who decides who should receive a scholarship? The NCBC Scholarship Committee reviews all applications for eligibility based on the NCBC bylaws. The committee consists of the following members: Teresa Underwood (chair/OHNB), Evangeline Alexandris (MDB), Rugena Bivins (TNWB), Melissa Brearey (NVB), Maggie Ferere (FLSB), and Katherine Schneider (OHNB). To see if you qualify, visit the Scholarship Info webpage on the NCBC website: http://www.ncbcweb.com/scholarship-info.
How much can I receive? If eligible, you may receive up to $500.00 for use toward your continuing education. This can include the NCBC annual conference registration fee, college tuition, seminars or other qualifying educational expense.
I received a scholarship last year. Can I re-apply? Yes, but note that applicants not previously awarded a scholarship may be given priority consideration by the committee.
How do I submit my application and what’s the deadline?
Visit the Scholarship Info webpage on the NCBC website: http://www.ncbcweb.com/scholarship-info to submit your on-line application from February 1, 2019 until April 15, 2019. Tell us about yourself and your goals to further your education. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
What if I have questions?
If you have questions about the scholarship process, contact a Scholarship Committee member, your circuit representative, or your local representative. You may also submit questions and comments via the Tell Us What You Think link at the bottom of the NCBC home page.
