The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund benefits dependent children with strong financial need, as well as spouses and domestic partners of 9/11 victims. Scholarships may be used to attend an accredited vocational-technical school, trade school, two-year college, four-year college, or university located in the United States.
Recipients may receive scholarship awards for up to four years, or the equivalent if attendance is part-time, depending on total funding available. Eligibility for scholarship assistance is always based on financial need, as calculated by our financial need formula. Funds are available for undergraduate study and, in some cases, for graduate study.
