The NLHA Education Fund was established as a 501(c)(3) organization to raise funds for the purpose of awarding education grants and scholarships to low income individuals residing in federally assisted rental housing owned, managed, or administered by members of the National Leased Housing Association. Applicants must be residents of privately-owned federally assisted low income housing properties, or recipients of Section 8 voucher assistance that demonstrate both need and merit. Awards are available for undergraduate and graduate studies, trade schools and returning students.
The NLHA Education Fund will offer four types of scholarships, one in recognition of one of the nation’s largest affordable rental housing providers and three are in memory of three dedicated housing professionals and active NLHA members. The deadline for application submission is in April at 5:00 pm ET. All applications must be submitted electronically through the link provided. Applications will be accepted online starting November 1st.
