2019 NCBFAA Scholarship Program Is Now Open and Accepting Applications
The National Customs Broker and Forwarder Association of America (NCBFAA) offers a $5,000 scholarship award to students intending to join the trade industry. The award is presented to the winner at the NCBFAA annual conference. Roanoke is delighted to once again sponsor this meaningful competition and each year we look forward to sharing in the excitement of the winner.
Here’s what our 2018 winner, Ashley Mosier, had to say about the program:
“I would love to thank Roanoke Insurance Group! This money will do wonders for me! I was so happy to win. I’d worked really hard, but I’ve never won anything so I wasn’t expecting the call. I was really speechless when I’d heard I won. The money will definitely help me with the costs of school, as well as helping me prepare for taking the brokerage exam in the fall. Again, I was so thankful for the opportunity and for everything I’ve won. Thanks to everyone at Roanoke!”
