Purpose of NAJA

The National Association of Junior Auxiliaries, Inc. was established in 1941 with the purpose of uniting members "to render charitable services which are beneficial to the general public, with particular emphasis on children, and to cooperate with other organizations performing similar services." Today the growing Association continues the focus of meeting the needs of children and youth in keeping with the NAJA slogan: "Caring Hearts. Helping Hands. Changing Lives."

History of NAJA Scholarship

Begun in 1962, the NAJA Graduate Scholarship Program has awarded more than 579 scholarships totaling $1,437,504.00 for graduate study in fields which address the special needs of children and youth.

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, the Robbins family, memorials, and honorary gifts from individuals and groups support the Program.
