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, supported by NARFE members and administered by FEEA. A total of $1,029,000 has been awarded to the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of NARFE members (as of 2016).
In 2016, delegates at the 34th Biennial NARFE National Convention in Reno, NV, voted to name the NARFE-FEEA Scholarship Awards Program after Steve Bauer, outgoing executive director of FEEA. The resolution cited Bauer's efforts in guiding the establishment of an organization that provides a way for federal employees to help other federal employees.
The competition is open to high school seniors only. Sixty winners will be chosen. Each will receive a one-time award of $1,000.
