Carroll R. Gibson Scholarship
The Carroll R. Gibson Scholarship Foundation, established in 1988 by the National Association of Black Narcotic Agents (NABNA), is named in honor of Special Agent Carroll R. Gibson. The purpose of the Foundation is to (1) celebrate his legacy for providing enlightening and life-supporting direction to this great organization, and (2) to symbolize the relationship between learning and the role of public servants, in a strictly non-partisan fashion. Agent Gibson, served the Drug Enforcement Administration and its predecessor agencies with distinction for more than 20 years and, until his premature death in 1987. He gave unselfishly his time and talents on the front lines in the war on substance abuse and drug trafficking. He promoted purposeful public service and a sense of social awareness and responsibility. NABNA seeks to support aspiring criminal justice professionals who share Agent Gibson's passion, integrity, and commitment to giving back and making a difference in this nation. The Association is committed to excellence in narcotic enforcement and conducts annual training and education programs for criminal justice professionals. Since 1990, NABNA has awarded more than seventy-five thousand dollars ranging from $500 to $5000 to individual scholarship recipients. The financial support enables deserving students the opportunity to pursue their career goals, grow and better contribute their talents to the law enforcement community.
The Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund (FEEA)-NABNA Scholarship Fund provides merit-based scholarships to NABNA members and their families.
