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 next program will begin February 1, 2014, and will close April 25, 2014. The competition is open to high school seniors only. Sixty winners will be chosen. Each will receive a one-time award of $1,000.
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.
Watch for the official scholarship application in the February issue of narfe magazine, or link directly to the application from this page during the run of the program.
