MEMORIAL FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
Each year Kootenai County Police & Fire Memorial Foundation supports a promising young scholar with the Memorial Foundation Scholarship Award. Each year the Memorial Foundation awards a $5,000 scholarship to a graduating Kootenai County high school senior. Only children and step-children of qualifying first responders are eligible to apply.
The Memorial Foundation Award is a merit scholarship and the single most important factor is academic achievement, but 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.
