Nominee Expectations and Provisions

  1. FON scholarships and awards opportunities are a direct benefit of your TRIO program’s annual membership in NAEOP. Nominations will only be accepted from program’s who have current paid membership. Current membership will be verified with the NAEOP Treasurer.
  2. It is customary to have each recipient of the FON Scholastic Achievement and Pearl M. Hill Scholarship awards share their TRIO story and be recognized for their achievement during the Friends of NAEOP TRIO Awards Banquet at the annual NAEOP Conference.
