NAGA Educational Scholarship Grant

 

    

National Amputee Golf Association 
Educational Scholarship Grant

 

One of the goals of our Association is to provide educational assistance to an amputee member or his or her dependent(s).  Applications are being accepted from qualified individuals for an educational grant.  The scholarship grant is to be awarded at the 2005 National Amputee Golf Association Annual Membership Meeting.

 

Criteria for the grant and the methods for implementation are as follows:

 

            1. The amount of the grant will be $1,000.00/year (maximum), which will be awarded in increments of $500.00/semester.  Tri-semester programs will be considered but not applicable with regards to payment method.  If an individual is selected, the grant will be issued each year for a maximum of four (4) years.

 

            2. The primary purpose of this grant is to assist an amputee member or their dependent in the payment of tuition and fees while pursuing an undergraduate or two year vocational/technical degree at an accredited college, vocational /technical school  or institution.  The check will be made payable to the Award recipient.

 

            3. Once selected as an NAGA Scholarship Award recipient, the continuation of the grant will be based on the following  three items.

           

                           A.        Maintaining a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale per semester.

Should the average fall below this minimum, NAGA may request the name of the guidance counselor at the institution in order to obtain additional information upon which to base its determination for continuation.  A probationary period of one semester may be authorized if the GPA drops appreciably below the established standard.

 

B.          Continuing evidence of financial need.

 

C.         Continuation of membership    

The qualified amputee must maintain continuing evidence of the payment of annual membership dues for the duration of the scholarship if a Regular member or be a Life member of NAGA.
