NAMA Foundation to award $1,000 scholarships to operators to cover NAMA Show expenses; application deadline is June 30

June 23, 2021

The National Automatic Merchandising Association Foundation announced today new scholarship opportunities for operators to attend The NAMA Show and Coffee Tea & Water.

Scholarship recipients will be awarded $1,000 to cover show registration, travel and lodging for the August 2021 trade event in New Orleans. Scholarship applications are open until June 30 and winners will be notified in late July.

For consideration, applicants must be employed by a NAMA member classified as an "operator" in good standing and present a financial need for assistance.

“From curated education to an expansive show floor, this year’s show has it all,” said NAMA Foundation director Terri Bruce. “Our goal is to enable operators who have faced a challenging year to experience a one-stop-shop for building relationships, finding new products and gaining intelligence to support their business.”

This scholarship program is sponsored by Nayax Ltd., Tyson Foods, Azkoyen and Gimme.
