For the fourth consecutive year commencing in 2014 Harris Security Systems, Inc. has sponsored and Troy University has awarded three (3) scholarships for incoming freshman to Troy University.
These scholarships are for the children of first responders (fire, police, EMT). We would appreciate it if you could pass this along to your contacts in the first responder community. The description of the scholarship is as follows: Harris Security First Responders Scholarship will be awarded to entering freshman at Troy University, who are the sons or daughters of first responders.
(First Responders are defined as current, full-time employees of fire, police, or EMT organizations who have been employed in their profession for a minimum of two consecutive years.) Also, if the parent (first responder) passes away during active employment (not necessarily on the job), the dependent is still eligible.
Applicant must also have a 2.5 GPA and be a resident of one of the following counties in Alabama: Butler, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Houston, or Pike. Selection will be made by the Troy University scholarship committee.
For an application, the applicant should contact the Troy University Financial aid/Scholarship office.
