The NCOA Scholarship Fund is one of the most important entities within the Association.  Established in 1970, its single purpose is to help dependents of NCOA members to continue their education beyond high school. To date, the Scholarship Fund has awarded nearly $1.5 million in non-repayable scholarships.

The deadline for scholarship applications is March 31.  The NCOA Scholarship application is available from this website and may be submitted from January 1 thru March 31 each year.

The Scholarship Program is funded entirely through donations from our members and chapters.  The NCOA Scholarship Fund is a certified Texas Non-Profit Corporation, Federal ID # 74-2351587.  The Fund is designated by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) corporation and, as such, all contributions to the Fund are deductible to the extent provided by Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
