In 2017, The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) established the NAHRO Merit College Scholarship Program. Eight scholarships are awarded nationwide to candidates, one from each NAHRO region, who are pursuing a post-secondary degree. The scholarships will be judged by the NAHRO Scholarship Committee, which is comprised of Housing America Task Force members who accept and review the scholarship applications.
The eight regional scholarship winners will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. From the eight regional recipients, a first- and a second-place winner chosen by the NAHRO Scholarship Committee will receive an additional $5,000 and $2,000 award, respectively. Each region will submit an application of their choice from their own scholarship program.
If no regional scholarship program is in place, the region should select one eligible recipient to complete the NAHRO Merit College Scholarship application for submission. Please submit a photo of the candidate as a separate email attachment when submitting the application.
Please return the completed scholarship application to the appropriate staff member before their designated deadline.
NAHRO Member Agencies:
Eligible NAHRO member agencies must submit all of their applications to a regional scholarship representative, who will then conduct a regional judging. One candidate per region will be submitted to NAHRO for additional award consideration.
The final regional applications must be emailed to NAHRO by June 28, 2019 and the winners will be notified in July. The NAHRO Scholarship Committee awards scholarships directly to the accredited institution of higher education once proof of registration at the college or university is received.
All applications and documentation must be received no later than June 28, 2019 to: Ashanti Wright via firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: 2019 (Region Name) Scholarship Candidates
The rules, procedures, and application are below. Please review this material very carefully. If you have any questions, please call the NAHRO office at (202) 289-3500.
