The National Association of Enrolled Agents Education Foundation (EF) awards scholarships to both aspiring and current enrolled agents. The scholarship program is generously funded by NAEA members with additional support from Gleim to support of the profession and offer a helping hand to the next generation of enrolled agents.
The NAEA Education Foundation awards scholarships to offset the registration cost for the education programs offered at NAEA conferences and for the Enrolled Agent Exam Online Self-Study Preparatory Course offered through NAEA and programs available through its state affiliates. Consideration will be given to applicants who have experience in taxation or accounting.

About the NAEA Education Foundation
The NAEA Education Foundation (NAEA-EF), established in 1972, is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, dedicated to helping aspiring enrolled agents reach their goal by providing scholarships to prepare for the Special Enrollment Examination. Beyond that, we have a mission to assist enrolled agents and other Circular 230 licensed tax practitioners maintain their high quality professional standing. That is why our scholarship applications are peer reviewed and awarded to those who attend NAEA's premiere national continuing education (CE) program - the National Tax Practice Institute™ (NTPI™).
The NAEA-EF works collaboratively with NAEA in order to offer scholarships making it more convenient for independent practitioners to take the CE credits required by the IRS and maintain the license governed by Circular 230.
