NFPA is now accepting applications for our 2017 NFPA/Thomson Reuters Scholarships. All completed applications must be post-marked by July 1 in order to be considered.
There are two scholarships: first place scholarship is $3000 and second place scholarship is $2000. They will be awarded at the NFPA Annual Convention in New Orleans in October. Winners will be announced by September 15. This has always been a great way for our students to earn scholarship money for their paralegal education! Those applying do not need to be a member of NFPA. Remind students to follow the instructions for the deadline and documents required for the application packet, along with the essay.
