Harry & Dorothy Proud AND Martha HOPKINS Education Trust Scholarship

The Proud-Hopkins Family Scholarship is an endowed scholarship that is available to Nampa Christian graduates who attend a Christian College or University.  The specific amount of the scholarship has varied in past years based on the number of scholarship renewals and new awards for the calendar year.  High school seniors who are awarded the scholarship may be eligible to reapply in subsequent years.
