  • Scholarship Description
  • The Silver Shield Foundation has been helping children of police officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty with the cost of their education. We set aside an education fund for each surviving child to assist with tuition payments for prep school, college and university undergraduate and graduate school, vocational and technical school, and tutoring services. The tuition assistance program is flexible, aiming to meet each family's specific needs. We send payments directly to the schools and tutors, and we maintain contact with the families to follow the children's education.
