Scholarship Opportunities for 2017 Offered by the Washington D.C. Chapter of the National Naval Officers Association (DCNNOA)
For the past 29 years the Washington D.C. Chapter of the National Naval Officers Association (DCNNOA) has provided scholarship opportunities to graduating minority seniors from the DC metro area (MD, DC and Northern VA).
We are a non-profit 501(C3) organization. A copy of the application form can be downloaded by accessing our website at “WWW.DCNNOA.ORG” and clicking on the link “Click Here To Download Scholarship Application”.
We offer a number of scholarships with varying dollar amounts, the minimum being $1000.00. An applicant needs to submit only one application form and he or she will be considered for any of our scholarships for which they meet the requirements. If selected a student can only receive one scholarship, even though he or she meets the requirements for several of the scholarships we offer.
Students must submit a complete application package in order to be considered for a scholarship. Mailed application packages, including official transcripts, must be postmarked by February 28, 2017 and addressed to: DCNNOA Scholarship Program, P. O. Box 30784, Alexandria, VA 22310 or emailed to both Stephen.Williams@navy.mil and email@example.com. Applicants should take care to ensure applications are legible and signed.

All applicants should submit only one application; they will be considered for all scholarships! Commitment to community service is the primary criteria for selection and should be the focus of the essay. Our committee will review the “planned field of study” and determine who will be awarded the specific scholarships stipulated by the donor/sponsor of the “subject matter” scholarships. All candidates will be considered for the general scholarships that are not dedicated to a particular subject matter. Each applicant will be notified in writing about our committee’s decision.
Each year, the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) sponsors an Americanism Essay Contest for students in grades 3-12 including students with special needs. Grade levels are divided into three classes. One award in each of the three classes will be presented in each division. Winners will receive $50, and a $50 honorarium in the student’s name will be made to the Children of Warriors National Presidents’ Scholarship fund. DATES OF CONTEST: November 1, 2016 through February 1, 2017
