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 $969,000 has been awarded to the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of NARFE members (as of 2015).
The competition is open to high school seniors only. Sixty winners will be chosen. Each will receive a one-time award of $1,000.
