About the Scholarships
Since 1989, the NSA Foundation has provided annual scholarships to students who have at least a junior status or working on a graduate degree with demonstrated ability in public speaking. Or students who wish to use and/or pursue a career in public speaking. To date, the Foundation has awarded over half-a-million dollars to help students achieve their educational goals while, at the same time, giving back to the communities where they attend class, work and live.
Six of the scholarships are named in honor of a renowned NSA member who was also a thought-leader, entrepreneur, philanthropist, mentor and/or a nationally recognized speaker.
