First responders hold the fabric of society together.

Whether it's policemen, firemen, emergency medical professionals, or members of the military, brave individuals in these fields fight to protect our world, liberties, and lives every day.

Being a first responder often comes with risks. To protect our world and lives, first responders often put themselves in danger. And sadly, we lose many brave first responders every day. In the wake of these tragedies, spouses, children, and friends are left behind and must move forward in the face of the pain of loss.

As one small way to help the families of first responders, the A Heroes Family Scholarship exists to provide financial support for a student who has lost a parent or spouse to an on-duty tragedy of a first responder.

The scholarship is open to students in any field of study who are pursuing a 2 or 4-year degree, which can include a traditional college program, trade or vocational school, or professional certificate program.

The only requirement is that you are a surviving child or spouse of a first responder.
