Changes have been made to the Next Generation Scholarship process. Here's what you need to know:

Do I need to nominate students or be nominated to apply for the scholarship?
NO. This year, any student attending a University Member school can apply directly for the Next Generation Scholarship. University Member representatives or NRFSA advisors no longer need to nominate their students or submit applications on their students' behalf.

Is there a limit to the number of students from my school who can apply?
NO. This year, there is no limit to the number of students from each University Member school who can apply.

What makes a student eligible to apply for this scholarship?

  *   Applicants must be pursuing a major course of study or concentration relevant to retail.
  *   Applicants must be available to attend and participate in the 2018 NRF Student Program at Retail's BIG Show in New York City, January 12-14, 2018, including the NRF Foundation Gala in New York City on January 14, 2018.
  *   New this year: applicants must have prior or current experience working in a retail job or internship. This could be anything from a cashier or restaurant job to an internship with a major retailer.

How will you determine travel stipends for the 2018 Student Program at Retail's BIG Show?
The top two highest-ranking applicants from each University Member school will receive a travel stipend up to $1,500. From this group, the top 25 applicants with the highest scores will be selected as semi-finalists.

How will you determine the 25 semi-finalists?
A selection committee will determine the top 25 scoring applicants from the first phase of the application based on all submitted elements. These students will advance to the second phase, and receive a travel stipend up to $1,500 to attend the 2018 Student Program at Retail's BIG Show.

What comes next?
Applicants who advance to phase two will be assigned a project requirement and a company interview. More details will be provided to students who advance to the second phase of the scholarship process.

What's the deadline for the scholarship?
The deadline to apply for the Next Generation Scholarship is September 17 at 11:59 P.M. (ET).

Don't miss out on this opportunity to have your students and university recognized and receive funding to attend Retail's BIG Show. The Next Generation Scholarship is open through Sept. 17 - don't forget to share it with your students.
