The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has partnered with Columbia Southern University (CSU) to offer NVFC members a two-year scholarship to CSU. Two scholarships will be awarded in 2013. If you are not an NVFC member, you can join at www.nvfc.org/membership to be eligible to apply for this opportunity.
CSU is an online university that offers a wide range of degree programs, open enrollment, and a flexible schedule designed to accommodate the busy life of a volunteer firefighter or EMS provider. Fields of study include fire science, business administration, criminal justice administration, human resources management, and more. The NVFC scholarships can be used for up to two consecutive years towards any of CSU’s associate, bachelor, master, or doctoral degree programs.
Applications for the 2013 scholarships must be received by September 1. Learn more and apply at: www.columbiasouthern.edu/Financial/Scholarships/National-Volunteer-Fire-Council
In addition to the scholarship opportunity, all NVFC members and their spouses and children receive a 10 percent tuition discount and waived application fee to CSU, as well as a 10 percent tuition discount to Waldorf College.
