2017 Scholarship Program
2017 Scholarship Applications are now available!
Deadline to apply: Mar. 1, 2017
Created more than 50 years ago, the National Office Products Alliance (NOPA) Scholarship Fund started with a $5,000 donation and has now awarded more than $2.5 million in scholarships to deserving families of office products and office furniture dealers. Supported entirely through individual and member contributions, the fund recognized 40 college students receiving one-year scholarships for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Judged by an independent panel, not only are applicants scored for their academic success but for their outside interests, extracurricular activities, community services and financial need. Any person who is an employee or related to an employee of an Association member firm may apply.
Membership status will be verified. Candidates must have graduated from high school or its equivalent before Jul. 1 of the year in which they would use the scholarship. Candidates must have an academic record sufficient to be accepted by an accredited college, junior college or technical institute. Students already in college or graduate school may also apply. Please note: Previous scholarship winners are not eligible.

Past Scholarship Recipient
"Scholarships played a huge role in minimizing my overall debt. I was able to complete my undergraduate years debt-free, largely due to scholarships, for which I am very grateful."
- Hailey Holland, Scholarship Recipient (2009-2010) Sponsored by Kramer & Leonard, Inc.
After graduating college, Hailey immediately went into medical school at IUSM-Bloomington campus. She is now a third-year medical student in her clinical years in Indianapolis.
In her free time, she enjoys playing soccer with classmates and cooking new recipes. Hailey has spent quite a bit of time tutoring and mentoring throughout college and medical school (basic chemistry, anatomy and physiology, premedical student mentoring and career planning). She intends to complete a general surgery residency and continue teaching as a surgeon by eventually finding a job at an academic center.
