This year, NAAAP Philadelphia expanded its Future Leaders Scholarship Program by providing scholarships to 10 future leaders, an increase from eight given last year. Many students applied and each had an impressive resume, including high GPAs, and numerous accomplishments.
It was certainly challenging for the handful of NAAAP leaders to narrow down the applicants to 10 winners. In addition to submitting an application packet, each was also interviewed via video conferencing by NAAAP leaders. The scholarship winners possessed great interviewing skills in addition to their academic achievements and thoroughly impressed the NAAAP leaders.
The scholarship winners and their families were invited and recognized at the 9/11 Remembrance Day event at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. NAAAP Philadelphia is proud to support these amazing young adults with qualities that make strong leaders.
