The Fairfax Alliance of Black School Educators (FABSE) prides itself in giving back to our community. We do this in various ways, however, we are most proud of our scholarship program. Since FABSE has been in existence, we have awarded over $25,000 in scholarships ($5,000 in 2021 alone). Membership into our organization is the primary funding source for scholarships. Approximately 55% of membership dues go directly to scholarships each year.  We also conduct fundraisers to supplement the scholarship fund so that we may award more dollars or include more scholars. We encourage all to continue to spread the word about FABSE to others and/or participate in our scholarship fundraisers. Click Donations above to donate to our scholarship fund!
