Welcome to the AFCEA Educational Foundation

How to Donate

 

 

What We Do

The AFCEA Educational Foundation provides educational incentives, opportunities and assistance to people engaged in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Its programs focus on information technology, cybersecurity, telecommunications and electronics that support the defense, homeland security and intelligence communities.

The Foundation, in conjunction with more than 130 AFCEA chapters worldwide, provides more than $2 million in scholarships a year. Your generous donations make these scholarships possible.

 

 

Why We Do It

As a conduit to the advancement of STEM education, the Foundation cultivates and perpetuates funding that makes a difference in all areas of education, from students to teachers to the work force.

Our scholarship, award and grant programs ensure that tomorrow’s work force has the necessary technical skills to be competitive in the fast-paced, ever-changing global security arena.

Who We Are

The AFCEA Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization established to solicit, receive, administer and expend funds for scholarships in AFCEA’s areas of interest. Donations may be tax deductible; please check with your personal tax advisor.

A Board of Directors governs the foundation; a Strategic Advisory Council and a Committee for Scholarships and Awards support the board and staff. Members of these groups are experts in the STEM fields from industry and academia; many have military service experience.

Our History

The Foundation was launched in 1983 by Vice Adm. Samuel L. Gravely Jr., USN (Ret.), who served as its director of education and training from 1983 to 1987.

Adm. Gravely enlisted in the Naval Reserve in 1942, and entered the V-12 officer training program in 1943. During Adm. Gravely’s years as a junior officer, the Navy’s African-American officers were limited largely to the specialties of recruiting and communications, but the admiral mastered the skills of electronic communications. His last active duty billet was as the director of the agency now known as the Defense Information Systems Agency.

The AFCEA Leadership Forum
The Foundation also produces the AFCEA Leadership Forum, a professional development program for individuals in mid-level management positions from the defense, intelligence and homeland security communities.

Attendees actively participate in a program (12 instructional hours) that combine lecture and classroom instruction with key leader presentations. These key leaders come from senior positions in the military, government, industry, and academia.

The Five Questions Leadership Video Series captures some of the insight from the list of prestigious leaders who have presented at the forum.


 

 


"You have changed people's lives without a threat, without a demand, just simply with inspiration."

Sgt. Maj. Al McMichael, USMC (Ret.), the 14th Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, shares his take on what makes a great leader in our 5 Questions series.
