The National Electrical Manufacturers Representatives Association (NEMRA) has established the NEMRA Educational Scholarship Foundation Program to assist children of its representative members and their employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

- Be dependent* children, age 25 and under, of representative members of National Electrical Manufacturers Representatives Association (NEMRA) and their employees. Members must be in good standing as of the application deadline date.
- *Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the representative member’s or employee’s household or primarily supported by the representative member or employee.
- High school seniors or graduates, current postsecondary undergraduates or graduate level students, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate, graduate or doctoral study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, vocational-technical school or graduate school for the entire upcoming academic year.
