"Thank you for giving kids like me the opportunity to go to college. Investing your time and money in us will be worth the while"

- Sehvrine, NHF Scholarship Recipient

 "I love that my efforts are being recognized by people from the community I live in. We are united, working together for the brighter future of the youth that live in housing."

- Sharina, NHF Scholarship Recipient

Scholarship Committee

The NHF has a Scholarship Committee of dedicated community leaders who raise funds and adjudicate awards. Members of the Scholarship Committee serve as mentors for scholarship recipients to help them achieve their educational goals. The additional care the scholarship recipients receive creates a bond between the students and the NHF, a connection we hope will carry them through the completion of their degree and beyond.
