Each year, the Foundation awards 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. Scholarships are additionally awarded to children of current members of the FBI National Academy Associates through the George A. Zeiss Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Once again, we had a record number of outstanding applicants and awarded scholarships to over 100 deserving students for the 2016-2017 school year. This is an investment in tomorrow's leaders. The Foundation also awarded one J. Edgar Hoover Scholarship for $10,000 to Central Missouri University, designated for students studying in the field of law enforcement.
Is Your Student Going into a Skilled Trades Career?
The skilled trades includes jobs such as a carpenter, electrician, hairdresser, dental hygienist, HVAC technician, automotive mechanic, medical assistant and many other jobs that provide good incomes and are more easily obtained after vocational school or special training. We want to help. Our Skilled Trades Scholarship is the Foundation’s alternative to a more traditional college scholarship. The application process is the same as for the college scholarships, but with less rigorous requirements and a lower 2.5 GPA requirement.
