 FRA Education Foundation

 2020 EDUCATION FOUNDATION APPLICATIONS


FRA believes that educating our service members, veterans and their families is important for their futures, as well as the future of our country. In addition to FRA's longstanding advocacy for enhanced DoD and VA education benefits, the FRA Education Foundation was established to support the needs of individuals pursuing higher education.


FRA's Education Foundation sponsors a generous scholarship program that helps deserving students reach their educational and professional goals by presenting awards of up to $5,000 to individuals pursuing college and graduate degrees. The Foundation presents approximately $100,000 each year to recipients based on financial need, academic standing, character and leadership qualities.


ELIGIBILITY

You may apply for FRA Education Foundation Scholarships if you are affiliated with the USN, USMC or USCG through your own service or that of your spouse, parent, grandparent or great-grandparent. FRA members in good standing, their spouses, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are eligible for a wider range of FRA Member Scholarships. Scholarship recipients must be U.S. citizens and be full-time students at an accredited college and university in the United States.

Some of our scholarships have broad criteria for eligibility, while others are more specific. A list of scholarships available and their eligibility criteria, as well as other scholarships offered by the Auxiliary of the FRA and other affiliated entities appear below.

APPLICATION PROCESS

The FRA Education Foundation makes scholarship applications available from 1 September through 15 April each year. (The applications are posted at the bottom of this page as pdf files.) All applications and supporting documents must be postmarked no later than April 15th.

  • Applications and documents postmarked later than April 15 will not be considered

  • Applications that are incomplete in any way will not be considered

All eligible applicants will be considered for any scholarship for which they meet the eligibility requirement (based on the desires of the donor). Scholarship recipients are notified by email during the summer about awards for the school year that starts that fall. FRA only notifies the applicants who have been selected to receive a scholarship. Then, after recipients respond with additional information to determine if they still qualify to receive the scholarship, they receive an official letter signed by the National President.
