ISTS was recently named the 2022 recipient of the National Scholarship Providers Association (NSPA) Keystone Award, an accolade bestowed upon a company or consultant that sells products or services to NSPA members and has made especially outstanding contributions to the advancement of the scholarship community. 

The Keystone Award is one of several Awards of Excellence offered by NSPA to acknowledge and celebrate organizations and individuals contributing to student success and advancements in the scholarship industry.  

As a longtime supporter of NSPA, ISTS attends and exhibits at the annual conference as well as presents thought-leadership webinars, serves on event committees and engages in activities to connect with scholarship providers in the NSPA network. 

NSPA’s Executive Director Jackie Bright presented ISTS with the award during the Gala Dinner of the RESILIENCE 2022 Conference, held October 19-21 in Chicago, Illinois. The dinner – hosted in the Grand Ballroom of the historic Hilton Chicago hotel, the site of the conference – also featured live music and an improv comedy performance from The Second City.
