Awards, Scholarships and Grants

The National Organization for Human Services annually considers member nominees for eight awards/scholarships. The Professional Development Committee takes nominations until May 1 of each year, and decisions are made by June 15. The awards and scholarships are announced at the annual national conference. Individuals and organizations may nominate themselves or be nominated by others. It is possible that not all awards will be given annually if the committee determines that there are no nominees who meet the criteria for particular awards.

In addition to the awards and scholarships listed below, NOHS has partnered with the University of Phoenix on a scholarship. Information on this award can be found here.
