The Guiding Principles for the Member Benefit Fund Are:

Goal and Framework

The goal of the Member Benefit Fund is to provide access to unique opportunities for learning and enrichment to enhance individual knowledge and to allow for the development of collaborative projects to be administered on a local or regional level to improve the nutritional status and health outcomes for women, infants, and children. Additionally, this reinvestment in individuals and communities will allow for new and creative solutions and ideas to be shared with members of NWA.

Current Scholarship Opportunities

Scholarship applicants should expect to spend about 30-60 minutes in all to submit an application. This time includes preparing a written statement that is to be uploaded to the online application system. You may pause, save your answers and return to your application at any time by using the "Save and Continue" feature that appears on the top of the second and following pages.  A written statement is required as part of your application and should be uploaded in the online survey application. 

For scholarship applications to be considered complete, applicants will need to submit their online application (with the written statement) AND their supervisor will need to confirm their support. Supervisor contact information will be collected in the application and NWA will promptly reach out to confirm their support.
