Fannie Mae has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college.
The program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.

If a student is not eligible because the Fannie Mae employee has not completed the 180 day introductory period requirement or is not in good standing, they may apply the following year if eligibility and criteria are met.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Fannie Mae. Payment made in August.
Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award, ranging from $750 to $2,000; however, qualified recipients demonstrating no financial need are only eligible for an award at the minimum level.
Recipients whose parents choose not to supply the requested financial information may be eligible to receive a minimum award only.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Fannie Mae play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than May 8, 2023 3:00 pm Central Time.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
