The Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI and the Foundation are pleased to offer undergraduate scholarships to the children and grandchildren of members of the Society. Additionally, in recognition of the relationship between the National Academy graduates and Bureau personnel, we offer the George A. Zeiss Memorial Scholarship to children of current National Academy Associate members who are actively engaged in law enforcement. The Foundation attempts to provide as many scholarships as possible each year and utilizes a competitive evaluation process to select the recipients. Awards are limited to one award per student. Applicants may compete for a scholarship in any of the following categories in which they meet the noted eligibility requirements and criteria. The number of recipients and amounts of the scholarship awards are determined by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees each spring.
