The National Roofing Foundation (NRF) is accepting applications for its 2006-07 academic scholarships.
The scholarships, which provide recipients with $1,000 per year for up to four years of undergraduate study, are awarded to employees, immediate family of employees or immediate family of NRCA contractor members. Applicants must be high-school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who already are enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational or technical school. Recipients may use the money to support their studies at any accredited post-secondary institution; scholarships are not limited to students planning to enter the roofingindustry.
Recipients will be chosen based on academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational goals and third-party appraisal. Financial need is not considered. Applications must be received by Jan. 31, 2006, and winners will be notified by May 2006.
