Justice Federal Credit Union and Justice Federal Credit Union Foundation, Inc. officials, employees and their families are not eligible to compete. Applicant is only eligible if pursuing a degree beyond primary education/high school diploma.

Justice Federal Credit Union Foundation

The Justice Federal Credit Union Foundation was founded with a mission to offer programs and engage in charitable activities that promote education, recognize professional excellence and caring for others, reduce hardship, and improve the lives of Justice Federal Credit Union Members; and members and their families within affiliated law enforcement and criminal justice organizations, nonprofit associations; and the greater justice and law enforcement community.

The Foundation is pleased to award the following scholarships:

Enrique S. “Kiki” Camarena Scholarship
Enrique S. “Kiki” Camarena selflessly served as an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration Agent who was abducted and killed while on assignment in Mexico. Each year, Mr. Camarena’s memory and sacrifice are honored during DEA’s Red Ribbon Week, the nation’s largest drug prevention awareness program. This scholarship was established to honor the late Enrique S. “Kiki” Camarena (July 26, 1947 - February 9, 1985).

John Patrick O’Neill Scholarship
John Patrick O’Neill served as Special Agent in Charge at the Federal Bureau of Investigation until his retirement in 2001, when he became Head of Security at the World Trade Center. Tragically, he was killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City while selflessly coordinating evacuation efforts. This scholarship was established in honor of the late John Patrick O’Neill (February 6, 1952 - September 11, 2001).
