ALEXANDRIA, VA (August 27, 2019) – The Board of Directors of The International Conference of Funeral Service Examining Boards (The Conference) selected five candidates to receive the National Board Examination (NBE) scholarship. The scholarship waives the NBE fee, which is a $570 value for each candidate selected.

The scholarship program was open to candidates taking the NBE for the first time within one year of the selection date. To enter, applicants reviewed the recently revised NBE Candidate Handbook and submitted a brief essay on their biggest takeaway.

The Board of Directors previously awarded five  scholarships at The Conference’s Annual Meeting this past spring, bringing the total number of scholarships to 10 for this year. The next scholarship opportunity will open early next year, with the drawing taking place in late February 2020.
