The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) received a pledge of $90,000 from NAFSA: Association of International Educators to fund scholarships for African-American undergraduate students to study abroad. Named the NAFSA Tamara H. Bryant Memorial Scholarship, the gift will fund multiple scholarships each year.

FEA will award these funds to African-American undergraduate students in the United States who hope to study abroad, and who also embody Mrs. Bryant's spirit of resilience and commitment to intercultural exchange, per her endowment purposes. Students who fit these criteria are eligible to apply through FEA.
