For 20 years now, the National Foundation for Women Legislators & the National Rifle Association have joined forces for the Annual Bill of Rights Essay Scholarship Contest; which provides six female high school juniors or seniors a $3,000 college scholarship, an all-expense-paid trip to NFWL’s Annual Conference, and an award that will be presented at the event.
Application requirements for the upcoming Scholarship contest will be posted in late April 2017. Please check back here for other updates regarding the 2017 Scholarship.
