The FEW Foundation for Education and Training (FEW Foundation) is a tax-exempt charity focused on helping women enhance their career opportunities through education and training.

 

Established in 2004, the FEW Foundation is the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of Federally Employed Women (FEW), a national organization founded in 1968.  FEW's focus areas include Diversity, Training, Legislation, and Compliance.

 

The FEW Foundation supports FEW's National Training Program (NTP) and the Regional Training Programs (RTP's).  We provide academic scholarships, and partner with educational institutions.

 

The Foundation developed its scholarship program to assist FEW Regions to send more members to both the National and Regional Training Programs.  We partner to develop additional academic scholarship opportunities.  

 

The education and training we support not only assists women meet their educational goals and career advancement in federal service, but it helps train the future workforce.

FEW Foundation for Education and Training Announces the 2019 Grantham University Scholarship Opportunities

 

Federally Employed Women’s (FEW) Foundation for Education and Training, is once again partnering with Grantham University.  We are proud to announce a new and exciting career enhancing opportunity for FEW members, their spouses, and dependent children.

 

Grantham University is offering three (3) scholarships for their on-line certificate program of choice.  To name a few, certificates are offered in cyber security, business leadership, human resources, and project management.  A complete listing of certificate programs is available at www.grantham.edu.  If a certificate is not offered in your chosen career field, you may elect to receive a $5,000 scholarship to pursue other on-line courses towards your degree.  Both programs include books and resource fees.

 

Recognizing that everyone can’t be a scholarship recipient, Grantham continues to offer members of Federally Employed Women a discounted rate of $250 per credit hour for FEW members, their spouse, and dependents.
