Since 1986, the Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA) has offered scholarships to more than 10,000 individuals, including providing nearly 200 scholarships to the children of federal civilian employees who died or were severely injured in the line of duty during the terrorist attacks on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, the Pentagon on 9-11, and the US Embassies and Consulates in Kenya, Tanzania, and Libya.
Collectively, FEEA’s scholarship program to date totals over $14 million. FEEA champions the pursuit of higher education and each year supports hundreds of students with merit-based scholarships.
Scholarships range between $1,000 and $5,000 for one year of academic study at an accredited college or university. The scholarship is not renewable; however, applicants may apply every year they are eligible, whether or not they have received an award in the past. The majority of scholarships are awarded for undergraduate study, with occasional awards for graduate study.
These scholarships are for children, step-children, and legal dependents of full- or part-time permanent federal civilian or postal workers employed with the federal government for more than three years, as well as the employees themselves and their spouses.
