NTAGGL Scholarship Applications

Today, we begin accepting applications for “NTAGGL Scholarships – 2017”. In 2016, we awarded six (6) $1,000 Scholarships to students who were working hard to better their futures by continuing their education and striving for a degree in their chosen field of study. Over the last few years, we have worked hard to create and organize the NTAGGL “Scholarship Award Program”. Through your assistance, we have raised enough 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. The scholarship funds will help the recipients with the high cost of continuing their education. To Apply look for application under the Scholarship Tab...
