The University of Chicago is offering scholarships to the children of professional fire fighters and police – including IAFF members – who are high school seniors and qualify for admission.
The new Police and Fire Scholarship program is a four-year, full-tuition scholarship created to honor the nation’s public safety officers.
Candidates must be children (including legally adopted children) of currently active, sworn, professional municipal, county or state fire fighters or police officers. Parents must remain on active duty for the four years of the scholarship. Students whose parents have lost their life in the line of duty are also eligible.
The deadline for applications is November 1, 2018, for Early Decision and Early Action and January 2, 2019, for Early Decision II and Regular Decision.
To apply, students must submit a complete application, as well as a brief employment verification form.
