Award: Five (5) $1,000 awards

Eligibility: High school seniors graduating in 2022, recently graduated 2021 seniors, and those currently enrolled in community college/trade school or who are planning on attending community college/trade school.

Scholarship Details: These days, many students are embarking on alternative paths after high school from gap years volunteering abroad to two-year community colleges and trade schools. Community colleges and trade schools can offer many benefits such as lower tuition with excellent educational opportunities in different majors as well as specific training in vocational programs. Additionally, two-year programs can easily transfer to four-year programs later, when you are more certain on the major/area of study you wish to pursue.  For those students who are planning on or are currently enrolled in a community college or trade school, NSHSS is awarding five (5) $1,000 scholarships to assist you in pursuing your goals.
