At their recent meeting, the Trustees of the Former Agents of the FBI Foundation awarded a scholarship for the 2019-20 academic year to Paige Brunson of Valencia. Brunson will attend UCLA in the fall and is the granddaughter of retired FBI Agent Harold Brunson.
The funding of the Foundation’s Scholarship Program is based in part on the contributions of current members of the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI, as well as contributions left through sizable bequests over the years. Scholarships are granted to outstanding students based on financial need, academic achievement, leadership and community involvement.
The Former Agents of the FBI Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI, Inc. located in Dumfries, Va. For the 2019-20 academic year, the Foundation has awarded 108 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
Undergraduate students who are children and grandchildren of society members are eligible to apply. Additionally, children of members of the FBI National Academy Associates are eligible to apply for the George A. Zeiss Memorial Scholarship.
Information and applications for the Foundation’s 2020-21 Scholarship program will be available at www.socxfbi.org beginning in December 2019.
