Academic Year 2020/2021

Dear Scholarship Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in applying for an Arkansas National Guard Foundation (ANGF) Scholarship. It is indeed a privilege and pleasure to welcome your commitment to furthering your education and your interest in the Scholarship Program. Fifty $750 scholarships will be awarded for the academic year 2020-2021.

To ensure your opportunity of being a viable candidate for a scholarship, appearing below are some guidelines that are extremely important as you complete your application for scholarship consideration.

VERY IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ

  • You or your sponsor (if you are a dependent) MUST be a current member of the National Guard Association of Arkansas or the Enlisted Association of the Arkansas National Guard (NGAA/EAANG) (current year association dues must have been paid). This is not the same thing as being a member of the Arkansas National Guard. An individual’s National Guard Association status may be checked by contacting his/her local unit’s NGAA/EAANG representative, or the NGAA office at 501-758-6422.

  • You or your sponsor MUST be covered under the group life insurance program administered by NGAA. This insurance is State Sponsored Life Insurance (SSLI) and not Servicemen’s’ Group Life Insurance (SGLI). If you (or your sponsor) are not covered under the NGAA SSLI insurance program, contact NGAA at 501-758-6422 for information on how to obtain coverage.

  • Any military member who is also a dependent of an NGAA/EAANG member must be a current NGAA or EAANG member and participate in the NGAA insurance program on his/her own. You must apply as a member, not a dependent.

  • Dependents of deceased members of NGAA/EAANG may apply if the deceased member had coverage under the NGAA group life insurance program.

  • All fields on the application should be completed unless a specific field does not apply to you. Please double-check all fields before you submit the application.

  • Sections 4 through 7 are important. These sections should be carefully considered and completed to the best of your ability.

  • In section 8, applicant’s most recent GPA and ACT/SAT scores are very important — make sure you provide this information.

  • Applications must be submitted by the deadline noted at the bottom of this page, with no exceptions.

The above information is very important and will help you toward being a more viable candidate in your search for financial assistance to pursue your educational goals. Best wishes in your educational endeavors both now and in the future.

ELIGIBILITY:

National Guard Association of Arkansas and Enlisted Association of the Arkansas National Guard members (both active and retired Arkansas National Guard members) that are covered under the NGAA group life insurance program (SSLI), their dependents, and dependents of deceased NGAA/EAANG members that were covered under the NGAA group life insurance program are eligible to apply for scholarships awarded by the ANGF Scholarship Program.

Deadline for submission of applications is January 16, 2020.
