The AFCEA Educational Foundation Mission
The AFCEA Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational incentives, opportunities and assistance for people engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines focused on information technology, cybersecurity, telecommunications and electronics supporting the defense, homeland security and intelligence communities.
The components of the AFCEA Educational Foundation's present efforts are:
- Scholarships and Grants Program
- Awards for Excellence and Merit
The foundation actively promotes opportunities for diversity in STEM fields.
AFCEA International supports local chapters, sponsors events, publishes the award-winning SIGNAL Magazine, promotes education, and provides member benefits – all with the purpose of equipping its members to meet government’s challenges and to further their careers.
AFCEA and its chapters provide a common ground for learning that is unquestioned in its integrity and unequaled in the reach of its relationships. Members support AFCEA International for the same reason: We enable our members to serve and help them succeed.
