About the NAEA Education Foundation
The NAEA Education Foundation (NAEA-EF), established in 1972, is 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.
