The Memorial Foundation Award is a merit scholarship and the single most important factor is academic achievement. The selection committee also considers many other criteria, including personal character, extracurricular accomplishments, and potential for success.
The selection committee requires two letters of recommendation. One must be from a teacher or counselor, and neither may be written by a relative.
Only children and step-children of qualifying first responders are eligible to apply. Applicants must be a graduating Kootenai County senior.
Kootenai County Police & Fire Memorial Foundation will support a promising young scholar with the Memorial Foundation Scholarship Award, a $5,000 scholarship.
