The Memorial Foundation Scholarship Award is a merit based scholarship and the single most important factor is academic achievement. 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 a $5,000 scholarship.
The selection committee also considers many other criteria, including personal character, extracurricular accomplishments, and potential for success. In order to be considered for the scholarship send all application materials and two letters of recommendation (one must be from a teacher or counselor, and neither by a relative) to Kootenai County Police & Fire Memorial Foundation, PO BOX 1748, Hayden, Id. 83835.
