The NEF awarded over $59,000 to Northmont graduating seniors in 2020.  These recipients were selected as follows:  The NEF appoints a selection committee from its trustees.  All scholarship applications submitted are assigned a number by the HS Guidance office to maintain their anonymity.  Once completed, the applications are delivered to the scholarship selection committee.  The committee is comprised of professionals; including retired educators, businessmen and women, and individuals from the Northmont community.  Most of our committee members have served many years and have a great deal of experience in our process.  The applications are screened to make sure all scholarship criteria are met.  They are then reviewed for content and ranked by the committee.  students who are selected are contacted via regular mail.  Their scholarship is awarded to them on Senior Recognition night in May.

Congratulations to all our 2020 scholarship recipients!!
