NOVEMBER 9, 2022 – Since 1997, the Navy Exchange Service Command’s (NEXCOM) NEXT gen Scholars Program has been rewarding students for getting good grades. The NEXT gen Scholars Program awards $2,500, $1,500, $1,000 or $500 to qualified students each quarter.
The next drawing is in December 2022.
To enter the drawing, students must be full-time with a “B” grade point average equivalent or better, as determined by their school system. Homeschooled students can also qualify with acknowledgement that the student has a “B” average or equivalent record of accomplishment.
Students must bring their current report card or other performance document to any NEX, fill out an entry card and have any documentation validated by an NEX associate. Once entered, the students will be given a coupon good for $10 off a one-time NEX purchase of $20 or more.
Eligible students include dependent children of active duty members, reservists and military retirees as well as U.S. civilian Department of Defense employees stationed outside the continental United States and U.S. civilian employees of firms under contract to the Department of Defense outside the continental United States.
Students must be enrolled in 1st through 12th grade. Dependent children without an individual Dependent Identification Card must be accompanied by their sponsor to submit their entry. Each student may enter only once each grading period and must re-enter with each qualifying report card.
NEXCOM, along with its vendors, has awarded a total of $848,500 in savings bonds and monetary awards to students since the program’s inception.
