Scholarships & Contests
One of the ways the National Slovak Society supports education is through its NSS Scholarship Program. The program was started in 1966 and named in honor of our founder – Peter Vitazoslav Rovnianek. Each year, many of our young members receive grants from the fund to attend college or trade school. From its inception, hundreds of our NSS youth have been recipients. Learn More.
