MEAP & Scholarship Group
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 $900,500 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 an eligible family member for the Scholarship program.  

Member Educational Award Program

GEBA Member Educational Award Programs was designed to provide educational assistance to members who were working full-time to fund their part-time studies or to pay off their student loan debt. Since its inception in 2012, the GEBA Scholarship Foundation has awarded nearly $114,000 to GEBA members through the Member Educational Award Program.

You must be a GEBA member as of January 15th of the year of the award. 

The two educational award programs are administered by International Scholarship and Tuition Services (ISTS), a firm that specializes in managing sponsored scholarship programs.  ISTS selects the recipients of the awards  Learn more about ISTS at
