Scholarships are offered in furtherance of NFBPA’s goal of lending support to African American and other minority students interested in leadership roles in public service. Applicants must be current full-time undergraduate and full-time graduate students currently enrolled in a traditional four-year, accredited university or college, have at least 1 full-time academic semester remaining, with a minimum 3.0 GPA (except CIGNA undergrad requires minimum 3.5 GPA). Applications open in the late Fall/early Winter. Applications run from the Fall until the due date. Selectees are notified near the beginning of February.
The NFBPA Scholarship Program is designed to recognize African American or other minority students who are currently enrolled full-time at an accredited, traditional four-year college or university (preferably an HBCU) who exemplify outstanding scholarship, and leadership, particularly as related to public service. NFBPA provides several scholarships to college students each year through partnerships with corporate supporters, public sector organizations and individual contributors.
