The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, the largest private scholarship fund for 9/11 families, has awarded $129 million in needs-based scholarships to over 3,000 students since September 11, 2001. The Fund provides private scholarships for financially needy children, spouses and domestic partners of people who were killed on September 11, 2001, or permanently disabled as a result of rescue operations.
But as more and more Ground Zero first responders and workers are becoming ill due to their heroic efforts following the tragedy, the demand on the Fund has increased.
To ensure the Fund is able to meet increasing demand, it is continuing to raise funds to help bolster scholarship dollars.
Scholarship America has been operating the Fund with no fees since 2001 and remains committed to helping eligible students from September 11 families realize their goals and full potential through education. Scholarship America will continue to steward the Fund until the year 2030 when the last of the September 11 children will have completed college. Recipients of the Fund have reached tremendous achievements, from appearing on American Idol to interning in foreign relations in the Middle East, and everything in between.
