911 Promise Scholarship
March 15, 2024
- Scholarship Description
To be eligible for the 911 Promise Scholarship, applicants must: be the children of a fallen first responder or military service member, or children of a first responder or military service member certified as not being able to work (children must currently be under the age of 25); have a school diploma or equivalency, or in the final year of high school; be currently enrolled at or accepted to pursue trade, undergraduate or graduate studies at an accredited trade school, college or university; and have at least a 2.0 GPA.
What began as an event to remember and honor those lost on 9/11, as well as fallen first responders and military service members in 2016, has now become an non-profit focused on providing financial assistance to the next generation of those who safeguard our local communities and country. The 9/11 Promise Run provides scholarships to qualified children of first responders and military service members who have been killed or injured and are unable to hold employment.
