NAG helps to cultivate and groom the convenience store leaders of tomorrow. In keeping with that
theme, NAG is proud to continue its scholarship fund for children of NAG members.
Here’s a quick look at the program’s particulars:
- The Program. The National Advisory Group Scholarship Fund is managed by Convenience Store Decisions and the NAG Board of Directors, and sponsored by the retailer and supplier members of NAG. This program was started in the late 1990’s and has distributed nearly $100,000 to deserving students. The fund is financed through annual dues collections by NAG members.
- Eligibility. Applicants who work in the c-store industry must be employees or children of employees who have a minimum of one year employment with a NAG member company. Applicants must plan to enroll in a full- or part-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two or four year college, university or vocational-technical school. Applicants who are current students or who have attended school within the past three years must have maintained a minimum 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
- The Awards. Due to the generous contributions of NAG’s dues-paying members, we have increased the number of winners to five annually and have a healthy scholarship fund to ensure the college-age children of NAG member companies will receive financial assistance to pursue their goals of becoming the leaders of tomorrow. The program will utilize standard Scholarship America recipient selection procedures, including past academic performance and future potential, leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience and an outside appraisal.
Awards are not renewable, though students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
