Tina and Danny Rodriguez were true citizens of their community, both in their attitude and actions.
Tina Rodriguez was a dispatcher at our local 911 center while Danny often worked relentlessly to give back to his community. Unfortunately, they both passed away recently and left their 13-year-old son and an entire community who loved and cared for them behind.
To honor their legacy of giving, the Tina and Danny Rodriguez Scholarship exists and will be given to one student in Illinois who is looking to pursue a career in law enforcement, fire safety, EMS, or 911 services.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a student in Illinois. To apply, please write about what getting this scholarship will mean to you, your goals, and how it’ll impact your career in public safety.

The application deadline is Feb 2, 2022. Winners will be announced on Mar 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $523 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 1, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
