The NEB Student Loan Fund (NBSLF) is available to any Northeast Bradford alumni who is attending college or trade school, earning continuing education credits or a Master’s Degree. The Fund was formed in 1958 with a goal of raising $10,000 to loan to NEB graduates in need. Since then, it has helped 321 students. NBSLF currently has about $198,000 on loan, with a total of $322,130 in assets.
This is a loan that must be repaid, it is not a scholarship. Applicants are encouraged to carefully calculate anticipated expenses and to not borrow more than needed. Applicants may be awarded up to $3,000/year for up 5 years toward the pursuance of a degree(s), depending on the funds available and degree of need.
The process to apply for a loan is simple. After applying for federal aid via the FAFSA form, the applicant receives a Student Aid Report (SAR). This report lists the expected family contribution (EFC), which the Fund uses to prioritize loans applicants. Download the NBSLF Loan Application, complete it and return it with a copy of page one of the SAR that shows the EFC. Be sure to identify two co-signers for the loan. Return the completed application and supplemental information to: Allisen Altvater, NBSLF, 526 Panther Lane, Rome, PA 18837.
