First Responder Scholarships Still Available

Monday is the final day to apply for several being offered this year by the International Association of Fire Chiefs Foundation, including a new scholarship to benefit women in the fire service.

Monday, June 1, is the final day for eligible first responders to apply to apply for educational scholarships being offered by the International Association of Fire Chiefs Foundation (IAFCF). Anyone may apply who is an active member with a minimum of three years' volunteer, two years' paid, or three years' combined paid and volunteer service with a state, county, provincial, municipal, community, industrial, or federal fire department.

The scholarships will help responders advance their college-level educations "so that they are better prepared to face the ever increasing and complex challenges of today's fire service," IAFC says.

In addition to IAFCF's general scholarship awards are two new scholarship awards for 2009:

  • The Motorola Future Leaders Scholarship Fund offers scholarships targeted to company officers recently or currently enrolled in IAFC's Company Officer Leadership Development Program offered at Fire Rescue International.
  • The Heather Westphal Memorial Scholarship Fund has been created in memory of the IAFC marketing manager who died in an accident in October 2008. This award will benefit women in the fire service and is supported by the IAFC and The International Association of Women in the Fire and Emergency Services.

The application form can be found at IAFCF's Web site. The Motorola Foundation, The Reed Elsevier Foundation, Glatfelter's Insurance Group, and other fire service organizations and individuals are donors supporting the IAFC Foundation.
