William E. Haas Memorial Scholarship
Almost 30 years ago William E. Haas, former Procurement Officer at Duke University, spearheaded a campaign for a scholarship fund to help Members attend professional development courses.

The NAEP Scholarship Committee, in conjunction with the National Office, oversees the administration and selection of NAEP scholarships.
The committee is also charged with raising funds for all scholarships. Several activities at the Annual Meeting raise funds for these scholarships including raffles at the Annual Meeting.
NAEP relies on the financial generosity of both our vendor community for support of the raffles and golf tournament and the NAEP membership for donations to the scholarship fund.
