Jack Kinnaman Scholarship

Sponsored by the NEA-Retired, the Jack Kinnaman Memorial Scholarship offsets the tuition of an NEA student member.  It was created in memory of an education advocate and longtime NEA member, Jack Kinnaman.   He is most fondly remembered as NEA’s Cat in the Hat.  Jack cared about the students, especially those who were financially impacted and needed a helping hand.  It is his family’s wish that the scholarship go to such a student.  Applications become available during the Spring semester and are due April 15th of each year.
