The Louis M. Atkins Presidential Student Scholarships are awarded to honor former President Louis Atkins and other former NAPS presidents for their dedication to NAPS members and their families. These scholarships are sponsored solely by NAPS.
Applicants for this scholarship must be the children or grandchildren of a living NAPS member, active or associate, at the time of drawing. Furthermore, the children or grandchildren must be attending or have been accepted by an accredited two- or four-year college or university.
NAPS will award five $1,000 Louis M. Atkins Presidential Student Scholarships. One winner will be randomly selected from each of the NAPS regional areas: Northeast, Eastern, Central, Southern and Western.
Applications must be received no later than Dec. 31, 2022. Online applications only will be accepted using the NAPS website. Please go to naps.org under the “Members” tab to apply for the Louis M. Atkins Presidential Student Scholarships, or go to naps.org/Members-Scholarship.
Scholarship winners will be announced in January 2023. In addition, the scholarship winners will be listed in the March 2023 issue of The Postal Supervisor.
Members whose child or grandchild have been awarded a Louis M. Atkins Presidential Student Scholarship will receive a check, payable to the college or university listed in the application, in January 2023. Scholarships may be used to pay expenses in the student’s current or following semester.
