NNOA Education Commitment 

The National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) is an organization composed of active duty, reserve and retired officers, midshipmen and cadets, and interested civilians. NNOA actively supports the Sea Services in the development of a diverse officer corps through recruitment, retention, and career development. NNOA establishes and maintains a positive image of the Sea Services in communities and educational institutions. The NNOA Camp Pendleton Chapter consists of men and women from various communities in North San Diego County.
The NNOA is committed to developing and supporting youth who aspire for higher academic education through establishment of tutorial programs and scholarship awards. The NNOA encourages local chapters to establish scholarship funds to support youth in pursuing higher levels of academic education beyond high school.

Chapter Scholarship Background

In 2010, the NNOA Camp Pendleton/Miramar (CPM) Chapter established an Annual Scholarship Program for high school seniors. A key NNOA CPM Chapter goal is to facilitate, participate in and coordinate activities that will uplift our local communities. In an effort to support the youth in this community, the NNOA Camp Pendleton/Miramar Chapter has established a scholarship award with criteria consistent with the mission and objectives of the NNOA.
