NHHEAF Network Awards $175,000 in Scholarships to NH College Students

After record number of applications, number of award grantees more than doubled

(Concord, N.H.) – The New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF) Network announced today that it has awarded a total of $175,000 in scholarships to New Hampshire residents who will be juniors and seniors in college for the 2021-’22 academic year.

The nonprofit organization, which has helped Granite State students and families plan and pay for college since 1962, began accepting applications for the NHHEAF Scholarship program in March, initially aiming to award 15 students each a $5,000 scholarship – a total of $75,000 in aid.

“We received a record number of applications for our scholarship program this year, and because of the individual character demonstrated – as well as the need – we were thrilled to be able to more than double the number of scholarships awarded – providing 35 students each with $5,000 in funding for the coming school year,” said Christiana Thornton, President and CEO of the NHHEAF Network.
