WSCFF Benevolent Fund Scholarships
We congratulate the 71 accomplished students who received a 2020 WSCFF Benevolent Fund Scholarship. A total of $49,600 was awarded. The checks were mailed to the educational institutions on August 6, 2020. Each recipient demonstrated outstanding scholastic achievement and community service.
“Receiving this scholarship will help me focus on my studies instead of worrying about the burden of school tuition. . . it means a great deal to me that you believe so confidently in my potential that you chose to generously support me and advocate for my education,” said one student. “Having any association with this award is amazing, so I’m absolutely honored to accept it,” said another.
Scholarships are funded primarily through the sale of fire fighter special license plates and an annual donation from DiMartino Associates and are awarded by a committee comprised of WSCFF District Representatives and two local members to students who are dependents of WSCFF current or retired members.
Applications for 2021 will be accepted between December 21, 2020, and March 15, 2021.
