Scholarships

AANR Northwest may award a $1000 scholarship annually to a qualified recipient who shows particular promise
that higher education will enable the student to realize his/her full potential and reach his/her goals. The
award is based on merit alone with no reference to financial need, sex, race or religion.

Eligibility and Scholastic Requirements

  1. At the date of application, the student or the student’s parent(s) must be current member(s) of AANR Northwest. The length of time the student or the student’s parent(s) have been AANR Northwest members will be taken into account.
  2. Students enrolled either full– or part–time in any United States 2– or 4–year college or university will be considered.
  3. Grades: a 2.5 or better cumulative GPA, or a combined total SAT of 1000 or better.
