NTAGGL Scholarship

NTAGGL will start accepting applications for our annual scholarships for the 2017/2018 school year. Up to six one thousand dollar scholarships will be awarded to deserving students. Over the last few years, we have worked hard to create and organize the NTAGGL Scholarship Award Program. Through your financial assistance, we have raised enough money to fully endow the North Texas Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders Endowment (Endowment) with First Command Educational Foundation (FCEF). All funds generated from the Endowment, as well as other specified funds raised throughout the year, will be used for the NTAGGL Scholarships. The Endowment will allow NTAGGL to grant several scholarships each year to eligible students that reside in one of the 72 counties of the SBA District that we service in North Texas. Award recipients are required to take an on-line course (free) offered by First Command Educational Foundation of “BASIC$4ALL”, a course that offers a broad range of everyday ‘need to know financial information’ for most people and families. The course covers charge accounts, checkbook management, understanding credit, loans, rights and responsibilities, buying stocks and investments, retirement, insurance and bankruptcy. The above course is required prior to submitting an application for scholarship assistance. The course has proven to be of great value to all scholarship recipients who have completed the course. In 2017, we awarded two (2) $1,000 Scholarships to students. Information along with scholarship applications and criteria can be found at www.NTAGGL.org and click on the Scholarship tab.
