NAR Scholarship Program and Robert L. Cannon Award:

Did you know that if you are NAR member between the ages of 17 and 22 attending college or a vocational school that you may be eligible to receive a scholarship?

Are you a teacher or educator who uses model rocketry in the classroom? You are welcome to apply for a $500 grant to use in your program.

In 2001, the NAR's scholarship and Robert L. Cannon educational awards were inaugurated at NARAM. Three NAR members received scholarships and two educators received Cannon award grants. For 2002, there were five Cannon awards and five scholarships presented to recipients. In 2003, there were four scholarships awarded to NAR members and three Cannon award winners. Since 2004, we have awarded 5 Cannon winners per year.

Deadline for applying for scholarships are May 1st of each year; June 1st for the Cannon award. Awards are presented at the annual meet (NARAM). You do not have to be present to receive an award.

Both of these programs are ongoing. The NAR board of trustees funds these awards at the Winter board meeting. Download either of the applications here. Eligibility requirements for each are included in the instructions. If you have questions concerning either program, please contact the NAR treasurer: Stew McNabb, via email: smcnabb@eastnc.twcbc.com OR Joyce Guzik, via email: jguzik@mindspring.com.
