ESA Scholarships for Children of First Responders
The ESA Youth Scholarship Program has contributed more than $733,750 to deserving children of first responders throughout the nation. High school seniors who have a commitment to excellence and are inspired by the work their parent(s) do in our communities, are invited to apply.
Students whose parents serve in a participating state must apply in that state. If state is not listed below with a participating association, students should apply directly to ESA below.
Winners from each state and the first-round ESA award will be automatically considered for an additional national ESA Scholarship of: $13,000 first place and $4,500 second place. See 2020 winners.
