The Police and Firemen’s Insurance Association has established a scholarship program to assist members’ dependents who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Police and Firemen’s Insurance Association Scholarship Program must be:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award. Up to one hundred (100) awards will be granted.
Recipients who attend a United States military academy will be eligible for a one-time, nonrenewable award of $1,500.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon the recipient maintaining a 2.5 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale as a full-time student. The member’s insurance policy, as well as the recipient’s policy must remain active and in good standing as a conditional of renewal.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in June.
