Florida Bankers Educational Foundation (FBEF)

Did you know that the Florida Bankers Association (FBA) works with bankers throughout Florida to secure the future of the industry? Our trade association has been dedicated to helping banks since 1888 and we continue to do that today by providing financial assistance to Florida bank employees who want to advance their careers through education.

The Florida Bankers Educational Foundation (FBEF) was established in 1956 and offers two different programs to support the best and brightest Florida bankers:

For bankers who wish to return to school and achieve their goal of completing a college degree, the Scholarship/Loan Program offers forgivable loans which are paid in full after the student completes one year of employment with a Florida bank or trust company following graduation. 

The FBEF also offers the Career Development Program to Florida bankers for financial assistance that can help pay for tuition at an approved professional development program.
