Scholarship Fund

Paying for college can be a hardship for many families. Unfortunately many young men and women have difficulty pursuing their educational goals because of financial burdens. For this reason, the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers Motorcycle Club (NABSTMC) has created an initiative that assists seniors in high school with their first year of college tuition. Seniors would be eligible for a maximum of $1,000.00 to be used for tuition.

The NABSTMC is broken up into Five Frontiers representing different sections of the country. A sum of $2000 has been set aside for each Frontier to use in the awarding of one (1) $1000 and two (2) $500 scholarships to a qualified graduating high school senior in 2014. The scholarship will be paid by the National Association to the student’s school upon verification that he or she has been accepted and enrolled at a college of higher learning. Graduating high school seniors with a GPA of 2.0 (4.0 scale) or better, who have applied or been accepted to college will be eligible to apply. The scholarship will be awarded based on financial need, proposed use, and the standing of the candidate in relation to other competitors based on overall qualification, with the most weight focused on the quality of the final essay.  

  •  Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
  •  Must be a high school senior or graduate at time of application
  •  Must provide a letter of introduction, transcript, and at least one letter of recommendation.
  •  The applicant and parent (or Guardian) must explain the financial hardship that they are experiencing.
  •  Must be accepted to a four year to two year college program.
  •  Must write an essay (500 words minimum) from specific topics (See application for details).
