Richard N. Brown Memorial Scholarship Application Now Available


The Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA), a non-profit organization that provides scholarships and emergency assistance to federal employees and their families, is now accepting applications for its annual scholarship competition.

As a founding member of FEEA, NFFE has worked side by side with the organization for over 23 years in furthering the educational opportunities of the federal workforce. In fact, more than 6,000 federal employees and their family members have received scholarships totaling more than $8.5 million since its founding.

Last year, NFFE and FEEA teamed up to dedicate a scholarship to the memory of their late board vice president, and our beloved national president, Richard N. Brown. Throughout his career with NFFE, Rick Brown dedicated himself to enhancing the well-being of federal employees and their families. This scholarship is intended to ensure that Rick’s legacy of selfless stewardship of federal workers will live on for years to come.

This year, two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to NFFE members seeking to further their educational attainment.

Applicants for the Richard N. Brown Memorial Scholarship must be a NFFE-IAM member in good standing or a spouse or child of a member in good standing. Applicants must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and some form of community service. Dependant applicants should be full-time students, while employee applicants may be part-time students. All applicants must be accepted into an accredited degree program. Submitting an application will also automatically register applicants for FEEA’s general scholarship program.
