One award offered annually.
In order to encourage growth and public awareness of the insulator hobby through collecting, dealing, and educational endeavors the National Insulator Association, Inc. (NIA) has established the NIA Scholarship Fund. Scholarship grant payments will be publicly presented at the Awards Banquet during the NIA National Show and Convention generally held in July. Checks will be mailed to the recipient, but the check will be made payable to the educational institution. The payment to the college or university is accompanied by a memorandum explaining the NIA scholarship policies and requesting that the school notify the Association (NIA) if the student does not register or withdraws from school. When a student withdraws, the institution issues a refund check to the NIA. Returned monies are credited to the scholarship fund.
Applications are available online on the National Insulator Association, Inc. (NIA) website. In addition to the completed application, the applicant must submit an essay of 300 words or less address ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
