The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) awards $60,000 in scholarships funds to 25 students in its annual essay contest for employees of NSSF Voting Member companies and their family members. To earn one of the scholarships, employees or their qualified family members submit applications and essays on predetermined topics.
