The Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI and the Foundation are pleased to offer a variety of undergraduate scholarships to children and grandchildren of Retired and Associate members who are high school seniors applying for college or current college students. Recognizing the relationship between the National Academy graduates and Bureau personnel, we also offer the George A. Zeiss Memorial Scholarship to children of current National Academy Associate members who are actively engaged in law enforcement.

Each year, the Foundation provides as many scholarships as possible and uses a competitive process to evaluate and select the recipients. Only one scholarship is awarded per student. Applicants may compete in any of the following categories in which they meet the eligibility requirements and Submission Criteria. The number of recipients and scholarship amounts are determined by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees each spring.

Applications must be submitted on-line by the applicants themselves for consideration. All application requirements must be fully completed by 11:59pm on Tuesday, February 28, 2017.
