Scholarships for Federal Employees

Scholarships

Saving for a college educations is something many parents begin the day their children are born. Receiving a college diploma is not only becoming more of a necessity to compete in today’s job market, it’s also more of a monetary challenge than ever before. When savings are in short supply to fund that education, receiving a scholarship can make a big difference in choosing where and what length of time someone can go to college.

To help promote higher learning for federal employees and their families, the Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA) is offering education scholarships that can help alleviate part of the financial burden of paying for an education.

Originally formed by federal civilian employees in 1986, the organization specializes in helping federal employees, their spouses, and dependants receive monetary assistance in their pursuit of a college degree. Applicants must be enrolled in a degree-granting program from an accredited college or university and maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average to qualify.

Applications for 2013-14 FEEA scholarships must be postmarked no later than March 29, 2013.
