Begun in 1962, the NAJA Scholarship Program has awarded more than 560 grants totaling over $1,349,504 for graduate study in fields which address the special needs of children and youth. The Betty W. Robbins Endowed Scholarship was established in 1995 by the Robbins family in memory of Betty Robbins of Ruston, Louisiana, who served the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries, Inc. as Director of Region V, First Vice-President and President (1992-1993).

 Contributions from Junior Auxiliary Chapters, the National Association, memorials, and honorary gifts from individuals and groups support the Program. The Robbins family makes matching funds available annually to challenge Chapters to increase their support of scholarship.

 Scholarships are awarded each April. If more than one Scholarship year is required to complete studies, the recipient may reapply, provided all previous agreements have been fulfilled satisfactorily.
