NBE Scholarship Entry Form

The scholarship submission form must be submitted directly by the candidate by 12:00 pm CT on February 4, 2021. In partnership with the Funeral Service Foundation, The Conference Board of Directors will draw names from all qualifying submissions on February 22, 2021. Recipients will receive one complimentary NBE registration (Arts & Sciences – a $570 value), which must be used one year from the date of selection. The scholarship is open to first-time NBE candidates only. Candidates that will be eligible to sit for the NBE during that time-frame may enter, limit one entry per candidate. The next scholarship opportunity will be available in the fall of 2021.

Please note that no refunds will be given if the recipient has already paid and/or sat for the exam prior to receiving the scholarship.
