First Responder Scholarship
Because of our gratitude for all that our first responders do for our community, we are excited to offer the First Responders Scholarship again for the 2021-2022 school year. The scholarship is $500 per family per school year for eligible applicants. Pre-K families are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Verification of occupation and employment is required. Applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. This scholarship is awarded in addition to any financial aid award.
A first responder is a person with specialized training who is among the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency, such as an accident, natural disaster, or terrorism. First responders typically include law enforcement officers, paramedics, EMTs, and firefighters. Because of the pandemic, this definition has been expanded to those providing direct medical attention to patients. If you are unsure of your eligibility for this scholarship, please email Director of Enrollment Dawn Theriault at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your service!
