Time to apply for the 2017 Youth Education Summit taking place July 24-July 30, 2017. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, January 13, 2017. Every summer the NRA selects 45-50 impressive high school students from across the country to participate in a week-long competitive fellowship in Washington DC. The week wraps up with a celebratory dinner where $15,000 is awarded out to those exceptional students who embody leadership as both individuals and as a collective. Students with an interest in becoming NRA Ambassadors can submit applications the following year for an additional $25,000 Grand Scholarship. The mission of the Y.E.S program is to give you the opportunity to explore your passion for our American government, Bill of Rights and the US Constitution, encourage you to become a responsible citizen who participates in the democratic process and empower you to return to your community with a proactive voice for the Second Amendment. Entry into the Y.E.S program requires submission of a completed application form, high school transcript, a three-page essay on the Second Amendment, a one page personal statement, and three letters of recommendation. Since its inception in 1996, more than 800 students have graduated from Y.E.S. and over $500,000 in college scholarships have been awarded. Please click here for the application.
