Hello FH.com,

Currently I am I explorer for my local dept and am finally able to join my local volunteer company upon my graduation of high school. The department i'm considering joining is about to graduate an academy and the next academy wont be until next january. I want to join this dept. because most of my friends are members here and my post advisor also runs there. Another local fire department has an academy that starts on July 7th but it would cost me $750 plus the cost of books to participate in this academy. As I am beginning college in the fall, does anyone know of any fire academy scholarships or grants I could apply for. I've seen these for EMT classes, but not for fire academies.
