We created the Noidentitytheft Scholarship Award to encourage and promote higher education. Students have the opportunity to earn an annual scholarship to ease the financial burden of tuition.
The $1000 scholarship aims to help students reach their education and career goals by assisting with the cost of tuition and books.
