The Nora Tamara Collins Scholarship (NTC) for High School Students of German

What is the NTC Scholarship? 

The Nora Tamara Collins Scholarship (NTC) was established by three of her friends and former students to honor the memory of this inspired and gifted teacher of the German language. Nora had strong ties to her birth country, Germany, and a great love for its culture. Nora passed away unexpectedly in November, 2020.

The NTC Scholarship awards $1,000 annually to a competitively selected junior or senior high school student in the Dallas-Fort Worth area who has demonstrated at least basic German language proficiency and a sincere interest in German culture with a desire to gain yet more familiarity with the country, language and culture. Funds should be spent to help further the applicant’s German studies.

The NTC Scholarship is funded through donations and is offered and administered exclusively through the Dallas Goethe Center.
