The Robert Grieser Memorial Scholarship is a $1,000 award honoring the memory of Robert Grieser, a founding member of the National Correctional Industries Association, 1998 association president, and a passionate leader in the field of Correctional Industries. His many years of contributions earned him the field's highest honor, the Rodli Award, in 2003. 

While the NCIA Scholarship program wishes to recognize academic achievement, it also serves the broader purpose of recognizing leadership, integrity, community involvement and a public service calling to serve the criminal justice community.
