In 1987, the Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund (FEEA) established a scholarship program for children and grandchildren of federal employees. NARFE became a member of FEEA’s board of directors in 1997, and the following year, NARFE’s National Executive Board authorized the creation of a scholarship fund open to the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of NARFE members. The NARFE-FEEA Scholarship Awards Program is supported by NARFE members and administered by FEEA. A total of $849,000 has been awarded to the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of NARFE members (as of 2013).
The competition is open to high school seniors only. Sixty winners will be chosen. Each will receive a one-time award of $1,000.
The 2014 program closed on April 25.
Winners will be notified by FEEA by the end of August, and a link to the list of winners and their NARFE sponsors will be posted here. The list also will appear in the December issue of narfe magazine. All applicants will receive a letter thanking them for their participation.
Details about next year's program will be posted here at a later date.
