NEMRA Educational Foundation

chain grey

Supporting the education of NEMRA member and college students.

In today’s fast paced and competitive sales environment, yesterday’s techniques and methods will not always meet the rigorous requirements of our customers. To keep pace and confront this challenge, we need to be better educated, more highly trained, and ready to recruit the next generation of sales leaders. 

The NEMRA Scholarship Fund

That’s why the NEMRA Educational Foundation created the Scholarship Fund. NEMRA Scholarship Fund has now provided over $182,000+ in Scholarships to deserving NEMRA Scholars. This year, NEMRA has added two additional scholarships and will be providing 25 Scholarships, in total, to deserving candidates. 

Ensure the continuous growth of our industry by making a donation to support higher education. NEMRA Scholars are the employees, or children of employees, of our representative and NMG member firms, who demonstrate superior academic performance or are pursuing post-secondary education to continue their development. Preference is given to those majoring or pursuing further education in business administration, sales and marketing, electrical engineering, and fields related to the electrical industry.

Donate to the NEMRA Scholarship Fund, and support continuing education and resources for NEMRA Members to pursue post-secondary education, and/or collegiate scholarships for their children.
