This program rewards college assistance to deserving SCTP and SASP graduating seniors. The NRA is a founding partner of the SASP.

Thanks to this program, the SSSF has provided over $200,000 in scholarships over the last four years to assist high school seniors in pursuing higher education. The main objective is to award as many scholarships as possible to qualifying SCTP/SASP graduating seniors.
