The National Scholarship Providers Association (NSPA) released a white paper in 2013 about the impact of award displacement on students. We are interested in beginning a thoughtful and constructive dialog about award displacement and how to reach the common goals of colleges and universities, and external private scholarship providers, in assisting students to enter and complete higher education by maximizing all forms of financial aid. Please join us in this conversation to increase the awareness of the issue and learn from each other about laws and policies that create or exacerbate the impact of award displacement.
