From Your Pocket to Theirs: Future Business Leaders Scholarships

Thank you so much for your continuing support of my educational goals through your scholarship program. I had another successful semester at Ashland [University] and made the Dean’s List due in part to your support.” – Julia Newberry, Mansfield, OH

If you, or one of your customers, know a college student in need of tuition help, now is the time for them to apply for a Future Business Leader (FBL) scholarship from NPA.

According to CollegeBoard.org, approximately two-thirds of all students require some amount of financial help to meet the cost of their higher education. With dramatic increases in tuition fees and the soaring cost of textbooks, the demand is now greater than ever.

The FBL program was started in 2003 to give college aid to the children of pawnbrokers or their customers. Since inception, the program has awarded over $140,000 in scholarships.

To apply for the scholarship, download the application and guidelines at NationalPawnbrokers.org/community-outreach. Submit the completed form along with the other requirements by Friday, April 20, 2018, to be considered. Scholarship recipients are chosen based on academic performance, community leadership, and written essay submissions.

If you don’t know a student, but would like to donate to the fund, send your tax-deductible contribution to NPA, PO Box 508, Keller, TX 76244.
