About NCSLVA's Youth Scholarship Program - Applications Due Monday, May 14, 2021
Scholarships to Support the Futures of the Sons and Daughters of First Responders
The electronic security industry works intimately with the public safety sector. We appreciate the contribution that police, firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs offer to our communities. To show this appreciation, the program was developed to provide college scholarship awards to their deserving sons or daughters.
Since its launch in 1996, ESA's Youth Scholarship Program has contributed thousands of dollars to students attending higher education institutions across our country. In fact, more than $700,500 has been awarded by ESA and its participating Chapters.
High school seniors who have a commitment to excellence and are inspired by the work their First Responder parent(s) do in our communities, are invited to apply.
