I have felt quite inspired by Fire Family Foundation and by being a firefighter’s daughter myself. This scholarship will have an incredible impact on paying for my college education at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. With every bit of help I get, it brings me more peace of mind as well as clarity so I can focus on doing my best in my classes.

I cannot express how honored I am to have been selected amongst so many dedicated students, and how grateful I am for your gift of financial assistance. Inspired by my firefighter father, I will pursue my own life of service as a nurse, starting with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing Education at Simpson University.

This scholarship will significantly ease my financial burden and allow me to focus more on my studies. It will help me see my way toward an environmental-based business career so I can give back to my community. Thank you for believing in me and investing in my future!

I am grateful to have a scholarship opportunity that was centered around my father’s career as a firefighter and how that has impacted my life. He has just retired after 34 years of service, and I hope to follow in his footsteps as a USCG Boatswain’s Mate on a Search and Rescue Vessel. I am currently in the Coast Guard Reserves while completing my degree and will be joining full time after college graduation.

Being selected for this scholarship has reinforced my respect for the admirable work that Fire Family Foundation does in supporting individuals and families within the firefighting community. This scholarship will significantly reduce my financial stress, allowing me to fully devote myself to my studies and creative projects at Biola University Film School.

The most significant impact this scholarship will have on my future is it will help me achieve my educational goals and advocate for those with voices less heard in the community. Thank you for investing in my future and believing in my potential.

The Fire Family Foundation scholarship has provided me with a comfort going into my next year of school knowing that I will have the ability to be more focused in my school work and student leadership positions rather than working more hours part time to support myself financially. More than that, however, this scholarship gives me an outlet to take all of my hard work and achievements and honor my parents for all that they have done for me. I am endlessly proud of my father for the work he does as a firefighter and this scholarship helps me to show him that.

This scholarship, provided by Fire Family Foundation, will alleviate financial stress and allow me to fully dedicate myself to my nursing studies at Vanguard University. It not only supports my academic journey but also honors my father's dedicated service as a retired CalFire firefighter, inspiring me to carry forward his commitment to serving others through healthcare.

This Fire Family Foundation scholarship will provide me with the ability to complete my first year of college with no student loans. My brother and I will both be attending college next year, so your scholarship helps more than you realize. My 5 year plan includes buying a house, so accruing as little debt as possible is very important to me.
