Please send a request for an application to or call (703) 267-1351.
Grand Scholarship

To apply, students must first attend National Y.E.S. After attending, students have 9 months to work on a Grand Scholarship application where they develop a portfolio that communicates the NRA programs they’ve introduced to their community and the impact those programs made.

Students present their Y.E.S. experience to local youth clubs and schools, volunteer at Friends of NRA banquets and many students establish Eddie Eagle GunSafe programs in their communities.

All 2016 Y.E.S. alumni are encouraged to apply for the Grand Scholarship! The deadline is July 1, 2017.

Should you have further questions, please email or call (703) 267-1351.
