Model Academy Senior Scholarship Award

The Model Academy Senior Scholarship Award is for high school seniors in a national model academy designated by the National Career Academy Coalition (NCAC). The scholarship was established to support young adults in reaching their life goals. The costs of attending post-secondary institutions can often prohibit graduates from continuing their learning and formal education. The intent of this scholarship program is to assist students who would benefit from financial assistance as they continue to work toward career and life goals.  The value of the scholarship is $1,000.

To qualify, applicants must:

  1. Belong to a national model academy designated by NCAC
  2. Complete the online application, which will include:
    A.) an official transcript from their high school,
    B.) Documented need for financial support to attend a post-secondary educational institution, and
    C.) One official letter addressed to the NCAC President from a school administrator or school counselor stating the attendance average of the student for the last seven semesters

The deadline for the completed application is 5:00 pm on October 18, 2019.
