We at GEBA understand the rising costs of higher education and the competition for scholarships. With the GEBA Scholarship Foundation, we hope to lighten the financial burden to allow students to concentrate fully on their studies.
The GEBA Scholarship Foundation
The Scholarship program was introduced in 2005 as a way for GEBA to give back to our members. Since its inception, the GEBA Scholarship Foundation has awarded $650,500 in financial scholarships to eligible GEBA members and their families to help them better afford their pursuit of a post high school education.
You must be a GEBA member for at least three years to sponsor yourself or a family member for the Scholarship program.
Member Educational Award Program
GEBA launched the Fellowship for Working Professionals Program in 2012. This program was designed to provide educational assistance to members who were working full-time while pursuing a degree part-time.
In 2014, the GEBA Board of Directors revamped and retitled this program to include additional support to GEBA members and broadened the categories that are covered by this program. These are:
• Regular college/graduate level courses (part-time)
• Student Loan Forgiveness Program
You must be a member as of January 15th of the year of the award.
