The NRA Collegiate & Schools Program established the Collegiate Shooting Scholarship Program to support America's youth in furthering their higher education. The scholarships are a unique way for high school students to receive support from the NRA to continue their education and continue their passion for the shooting sports and the Second Amendment.
In 2016, the program will open to high school students in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Virginia. Please check back to see if your state joins the program.
