WizeHive is pleased to be joining many of our customers and friends at the National Scholarship Providers Assocation (NSPA) conference in Kansas City this coming week.
National Scholarship Providers Association (NSPA) is a nonprofit, member association that advances the collective impact of scholarship providers and the scholarships they award. It was established in 1999 by Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, Fastweb.com, Hispanic Scholarship Fund, and Scholarship America to facilitate the creation of scholarship effective practices, encourage professional development, and establish cooperative relationships among scholarship providers.
Today, NSPA is dedicated to supporting the needs of professionals administering scholarships in post-secondary institutions, private and community foundations, public charities, as well as corporate and government programs. NSPA's 370+ member organizations from the United States, Canada, and the Bahamas give over 350,000 scholarships amounting to over a billion dollars each year. Along with the 850+ scholarship professionals in its membership network, NSPA works to develop standards for scholarship administration, conduct research to understand the depth and breadth of the scholarship industry, create professional resources for its members, encourage the development of scholarship programs, and advocate changes in policy. These programs assist students in paying for college, as well as improve college access and completion rates. The NSPA Annual Conference is the convergence of the scholarship industry bringing over 375 diverse scholarship funders together for three days of networking and learning.
