Children of Fallen Heroes Scholarship

Children of Fallen Heroes Scholarship

Starting with the 2018-2019 award year, a Pell-eligible student whose parent or guardian died in the line of duty while performing as a public safety officer is eligible to receive a maximum Pell Grant for the award year in which the determination of eligibility is made.

To qualify for this scholarship, a student must be Pell-eligible and have a Pell-eligible EFC, and be less than 24 years of age or enrolled at an institution of higher education at the time of his or her parent’s or guardian’s death.

A student continues to be eligible for the scholarship in subsequent award years, as long as they have a Pell-eligible EFC and remain an eligible student.

If you qualify for this Scholarship, please contact our office.
