National Scholarship Month


November is National Scholarship Month. Sponsored by National Scholarship Providers Association (NSPA), National Scholarship Month® (NSM) is about building an awareness of scholarships. Whether you are a scholarship provider, an institution of higher education, a student, a parent, or a business, National Scholarship Month is a way for all of us to celebrate our work and our common goal of helping all students get to and through college.

National Scholarship Month was established in 1998 by Scholarship America (formerly, Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of America). It provides recognition to communities, organizations, and businesses in the scholarship industry and serves to encourage others to step forward and join this movement to improve educational opportunities and educational achievement around the world.


We are proud to report the 2016-2017 academic year scholarship dollars awarded and students served by NSPA Members. Now this is something to celebrate!

In celebration of National Scholarship Month we are pleased to announce that we've launched an interactive Member Q&A Forum, which replaces the Member Q&A E-mail blasts. The Forum allows you to ask questions directly to the membership and respond to your colleagues by sharing your knowledge and expertise. The Member Q&A Forum page has instructions on how to create a post, how to subscribe to the Forum, and how to subscribe to individual topics.

A weekly digest will be sent out to all members. We hope you will take advantage of this key NSPA member benefit by participating in the Member Q&A Forum discussions. This is a members only forum and you must be signed in to view and post. You can access the Forum under the Members Only tab of the NSPA website or directly at this link.


One way to build awareness of the scholarship industry is to grow the National Scholarship Providers Association so that more organizations have access to member benefits, resulting in more effective scholarship programs. One of the most effective ways of recruiting new members is through current member referral.

The member who refers the most new members between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019 will win a free registration to the 2019 NSPA Conference in Minneapolis! Also, all new members who indicate being referred by an active NSPA Member will be entered into a drawing to win a free registration to the 2019 NSPA Conference!

If you refer a friend or colleague to join the NSPA, please have them enter your name into the online application form. Only members that appear in this application field will be counted towards this promotion.

Thank you to the following organizations for their generous support!
