Leadership of Bryan College announced a new scholarship specifically for all first responders and civilian employees of a qualifying agency. For eligible individuals interested in returning to pursue their higher education degree, Bryan is offering a one-time, $1,000 First Responder Scholarship, applicable towards Bryan College Online.
The First Responder Scholarship will be offered to individuals who are serving full-time, part-time, auxiliary or as volunteers in the following sectors:
• Law enforcement;
• Fire department, EMS;
• Civilian employees of those related agencies; or
• Immediate family members of uniformed members, including spouse or children.
“Bryan College first and foremost continues to lift our brave first responders and their families in prayer throughout the current COVID-19 response,” said Chief Mike Kennedy, coordinator of Military and First Responder Programs at Bryan College. “We cannot thank them enough for their sacrifices during this time. By offering the First Responder Scholarship, we are wanting to say ‘thank you’ for all of their hard work and service they have selflessly provided our community.”
Through this scholarship, Bryan is also providing a no-cost evaluation to assess needed training and education, and will allow all previously earned credits to go towards their degree program at Bryan.
Bryan has waived the application fee for those who apply for the First Responder Scholarship.
