They must be Douglas County residents, students pursuing a degree in Lake Superior College’s Associate Firefighting program and have a GPA of at least 3.0. Applicants must provide at least two recommendations, a transcript and documentation of financial need. In addition, preference may be given to: women and minorities, those who have participated in a “ride along” or similar program with a fire department, those who have volunteer experience or have studied a field related to firefighting and Superior High School graduates. This award is renewable once, assuming proper academic progress (GPA of 3.0 or greater).
