The Uniform Retailers Association (URA) is a trade organization whose members are independent retailers in the uniform industry. Members located throughout the world, operate hundreds of stores and have estimated annual sales in the millions of dollars. The profession employs thousands of full-time and part-time employees.
In an effort to memorialize supporters of the Uniform Retailers Association (URA) and others who have contributed to the growth of this profession, and to encourage and support URA members, their families and customers to continue their education beyond high school, URA established a scholarship fund. Each year URA may award one or more applicants.
The URA Scholarships
Applications must be postmarked on or before June 30 for consideration.
URA Scholarships are awarded for the purpose of higher education in the field of healthcare and/or medical business management. Eligible applicants include URA member in good standing, their children, member employees, their children, or any customer or student recommended by a URA member.
The Association may award up to $2,000 annually.
David Nejberger Scholarship
David (1961-2016) leaves a legacy of warmth, kindness and generosity of spirit. He helped so many in the uniform industry establish their business and guided them in continuous growth while building unconditional friendships. The “Nej” and his sense of fashion, was relied upon by many of his manufacturers. He was a dedicated professional and true gentleman who loved our industry and will be deeply missed.
In honor of David, the URA has created the David Nejberger Scholarship. Recipients must be pursuing medical studies with emphasis on cardiac medicine. Retailers and vendors have overwhelmingly inquired about donating to the scholarship; therefore, the annual award amount will be determined based on the seed money contributed.
