    NPG offers our annual scholarship opportunities to students across the country. We were pleased to receive the following comment from one of our 2014 Essay Scholarship winners:

      “I was thrilled to learn that my essay was chosen in NPG’s scholarship contest! Of all the many scholarship essays I submitted during my senior year of high school, approval by NPG means the most to me since I believe so much in what NPG does. I have told all my friends and family to go onto NPG’s website and take a look, and I hope some of them join and contribute to the cause. Once again, thank you very much for this award and your generous support!”
