Since the SNPJ Scholarship Program began in 1960, SNPJ has awarded over $1.8 million in scholarship funds to more than 5,000 members, and SNPJ members and friends have contributed over $900,000 to the SNPJ Scholarship Fund. Thank you to all who have contributed to this worthy cause which benefits so many of SNPJ's young adult members.
Qualified Slovene National Benefit Society members are eligible for tuition assistance for their educational goals, provided they are enrolled as a full-time or part-time student in an accredited college, university or trade school.
Scholarship applicants must have a minimum of $5,000 permanent SNPJ insurance at the date of application ($2,000 if purchased prior to 1996)* and must be a member of the Society for at least two years prior to application. Scholarships are renewable annually based on progress in studies, financial need and merit. Eligible applicants must provide proper scholastic data by the enrollment deadline and proof of involvement in SNPJ-approved activities.
*A $5,000 minimum issue amount applies to all new permanent insurance policies or increases to permanent insurance amounts.

semester for a total of $800 per academic year.
Part-time students (6–11 credit hours completed) receive $200 following the end of each fall and spring
