Start-Up Section

The diversity of scholarship providers is one of the hallmarks of the industry.  In this toolkit section, NSPA seeks to assist practitioners who may be new to the field or new to their positions, or provide guide to practitioners who are faced with revamping their scholarship program.  The examples provided also allow scholarship providers to see how organizational structure and types of scholarships differ on a practical level.
