When you support the Foundation, you are a part of something really special: a community dedicated to developing knowledgeable and innovative leaders through research and scholarship. Since 1982, our donors’ belief in the NACA® Foundation as a valuable community asset has made it possible to award numerous scholarships, research grants, and professional development opportunities to members of the campus activities community. We take great pride in our mission and accomplishments, and with your continued support, we can persist in advancing the field of campus activities. The Foundation currently offers a variety of scholarships to assist undergraduate students, graduate students, professional staff and associate members in pursuing educational interests and career development.
