Wellington Student Receives Scholarship From Former Agents Of The FBI Foundation

Tilon S. Pervenecki of Wellington was awarded a scholarship for the 2013-14 collegiate year by the trustees of the Former Agents of the FBI Foundation in Dumfries, Va. Pervenecki will attend the University of Arizona in the fall. His father, David Pervenecki, is a member of the FBI National Academy.

The funding of the foundation scholarship program is based, in part, on an endowment made by the late Rosamond Woodruff Morgan in honor of her husband, Judge Roy L. Morgan. Selection is based on a student’s financial need, academic achievement, leadership and community involvement.

The Former Agents of the FBI Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI. For the 2013-14 academic year, the foundation will award a total of 64 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $20,000 per year.

Undergraduates who are children and grandchildren of former FBI agents or children of graduates of the FBI National Academy, who are pursuing degrees in a variety of subjects, are eligible to apply. Beginning in October, information and applications for scholarships will be available online at www.socxfbi.org or by calling (703) 445-0026, ext. 4.
