Did you know FEEA and its partners awarded nearly $500,000 in merit-based scholarships this year? The 2016 awardees hail from 49 states, plus DC, Puerto Rico, and overseas postings. The bulk of our more than 350 scholarship recipients are children of federal employees who serve in 93 federal departments and agencies. A few are also grandchildren, spouses, and federal employees themselves.

Meet Nathan. Nathan is a freshman at the Colorado School of Mines, majoring in biomedical engineering, with plans to attend medical school after he graduates. Nathan was also president of his high school National Honor Society and a football player. Nathan’s mom is a dedicated public servant at the Department of Veterans Affairs. FEEA is proud to support Nathan and his family in pursuing his higher education and dreams of becoming a physician.

This program, and all of FEEA’s programs, are made possible by our generous individual and organizational sponsors who donate and pledge to CFC #11185 each year.
