The Scholarship application for the 2020-21 school year will be made available here beginning January, 2020.

Scholarship Guidelines

The National Corvette Restorers Society Foundation has provided funding for the National Corvette Museum to offer a scholarship annually in the amount of $2,500.

All scholarships shall be awarded in a non-discriminate manner, without regard to color, creed, national origin or gender.

Any scholarship awarded is for one year. Recipients shall not be eligible for renewal or reapplication of future scholarships from the Museum.

The application process shall consist of completing the NCM application form. A notice of availability of the scholarship program shall be provided on the Museum’s website, social media, email list and America’s Sports Car magazine, a publication furnished by NCM to its members.

Distribution of scholarship funds will be made directly to each student following confirmation of enrollment. In the event of any misuse of scholarship funds, the Museum shall permanently terminate the right to the misusing individual to further participate in the scholarship program and initiate and diligently prosecute collection activities to recover from the recipient all amounts which have been misused.

No scholarship may be awarded to any person who is related by descent or marriage to anyone who serves on the Museum’s Board of Directors or is an employee of the Museum.
