Prompts for the NEHS Scholarship essays based on the 2023 Common Reader, Beautiful Country, by Qian Julie Wang, will be posted November 1, 2022. Graduating seniors from active NEHS chapters interested in applying for the scholarships should be finishing their reading soon. Applications for the scholarships will be accepted December 12, 2022 through January 9, 2023, 11:59 p.m. CST. NEHS has increased the available scholarship funds up to $75,000.
Each year, scholarship applications are read and evaluated by NEHS Advisors from throughout the organization, educators who have volunteered to help with the assessments. A survey will be sent shortly to all NEHS Advisors asking for volunteers.
