Florida Future Educators of America (FFEA)

The Florida Future Educators of America (FFEA) Scholarship program assists the District to “Grow Its Own” teachers. Qualified Palm Beach County High School Seniors and Non-Instructional Employees who want to become teachers can apply and compete for the scholarship.

The scholarship provides $750 a semester for up to five years. As a condition of accepting the scholarship, scholarship recipients agree to return to Palm Beach County to teach. The Department of Recruitment and Retention verifies recipients’ grades and courses each semester.

Each year, our school district hires between 1600 and 1800 highly qualified new teachers, and FFEA assists in this process. Currently, 70 FFEA graduates are successfully teaching in Palm Beach County public schools and 35 more are attending accredited educational colleges and universities to become teachers.

FFEA Donations
FFEA is solely funded by District employees. If District employees contributed just $1.00 a pay period, 60 scholarships could be awarded. One hundred (100) percent of the tax-deductible donation goes to fund the FFEA scholarships. The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County is the fiscal agent. FFEA contributions make a lasting difference, as “teachers touch the future.”
