Scholarships provide a maximum award of $6,250 for a single academic year. Awards are based on financial need, academic merit, and achievements such as demonstrated leadership, excellence in the arts or sports, and / or volunteer activities benefiting the community.

The number of scholarships awarded varies from year to year. Scholarships may be renewed annually for up to four years depending on the availability of funds, the applicant’s financial need, and the recipient’s academic record.

The annual application deadline is June 15th, and applications are accepted at any time by mail, email, or through the online portal. A complete application consists of all the components listed in the checklist below.

When selecting award recipients, the Scholarship Committee evaluates many different aspects of a student. Priority is generally given to students whose first responder parent has suffered a line of duty disability or line of duty death and demonstrate the greatest financial need.
