The intent of this scholarship is to help active members of the NYA, attend the HDSA National Convention in Baltimore, MD and NYA Day on Thursday, June 2, 2016.
This fund was established to benefit all current members of the NYA and exists thanks to the support and generosity of families at the annual NYA Silent Auction and other events held at the annual HDSA National Convention, as well as fundraising efforts by NYA members throughout the year.
The scholarship is open to any current or alumni member of the NYA who did NOT receive a scholarship in 2015. You must be a registered member of HDSA’s NYA to apply. Membership information is available at www.hdsa.org/nya.
NYA alumni applications will receive full consideration from the scholarship committee. However scholarships will only be awarded if funding is available after current NYA member scholarships have been awarded.
All Scholarship recipients are expected to attend NYA Day on Thursday, June 25, 2015 as well as all pertinent workshops and NYA activities during the course of the National Convention. You will also be expected to volunteer either for silent auction preparation or at the NYA table during the convention.
