You can apply online on our website or contact Camie at 415 892-2789 for an application.
The NRWF High School Student Scholarship essay for 2016 asks students to do the following: Write an essay of 500 - 700 words exploring the following:
“A government that is big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take everything you have.”
What does this mean? Discuss historic or current examples of government’s giving and taking. How are you or will you be affected?
This topic seems particularly pertinent to the current events surrounding the 2016 election. Encourage your high school students to consider this topic and apply. Check out other scholarships offered by the State and National Federations of Republican Women.
